THE Lark Rise to Candleford story continues at four open air venues this week as The Plough Community Players continue their journey with the much loved classic.

Following on from Lark Rise last year, the story is completed with Candleford, as young Laura Timms leaves her village and goes to work in the very centre of rural 1880s small town life – the post office.

There are five shows, with the action opening at Torrington Vicarage Garden on Thursday (June 26) at 7pm and then again on Friday.

On Saturday the show moves to Northam Rectory and on Sunday there are shows at Hartland Abbey at 3pm and 7pm.

It sees the cast and their band of travelling musicians move en masse to a wintry Candleford Green, kept in check by Miss Lane of the Post Office.

Young Laura has left the familiarity of her home in Lark Rise to work with cousin Dorcas Lane in the Post Office - and what a new world has opened up to her.

The grumpies Zillah and Mrs Gubbins, the cantankerous, hymn singing Postman Brown, sad Mrs Macey, the men in the forge and many more…

As ever, the Community Theatre, under the direction of Richard Wolfenden-Brown, takes on a variety of roles with quick changes aplenty.

The audience is invited to bring low back seating, blankets and picnics. Refreshments available at all venues. For tickets or information call 01805 624624 or visit www.theploughartscentre.org.uk
