Richard III performance cancelled

We are very sorry to announce that this evening's performance of Richard III has had to be cancelled. This is due to Chirk Castle taking the decision to close the premises in light of weather warnings. 

We apologise for any incovenience and would like to assure all those who have pre-booked tickets that all online purchases will be refunded. If you purchased your tickets from Rowanthorn, please return them to the shop for a refund. 

Please watch our website and Facebook page for updates about future performances. 

Once again, we are very sorry not to be entertaining you this evening. 

Some needful advice...

Now listen up...
The medieval mafia have sent me, Lord Hastings - aka Baron Bill - to give you some needful advice about coming to watch our play. (Richard III, this Thursday and Friday at Chirk Castle, in case you've forgotten.)
So sit up and listen, or I'll lamp ya with my lute.
– As it’s an outdoor production it’s advisable to BRING YOUR OWN CHAIRS. There will be a few there but not enough for everyone.
– It’s a long play (with interval) so bring warm clothing for the cool night air, and come prepared for showers.
– Starts 7.30, but doors open at 6 so do feel free to bring a picnic and make an evening of it. The café will be open until the start, and again in the interval.
– Parking will be up by the castle itself rather than in the usual public car park at the bottom of the hill. Follow stewards’ directions. The performance is in the castle courtyard.

Final rehearsals

LADS patron Michael Corbidge, who travels the world lending his expertise to professional actors, has made time to visit us to share his skills and enthusiasm. Today, he put the cast of Richard III through their paces in the stunning grounds of Chirk Castle. Get your tickets online for our performances in Chirk's historic courtyard.

The LADS are very excited about this. It's a brand new theatre! 
The Holroyd Community Theatre is going up at Moreton Hall School and we can't wait to perform there. One of our committee members, Alison Utting, has become a Director of the new theatre. It promises to be a fabulous performance space with an exciting programme. 
Loveday Ingram, a renowned writer and director, is the Artistic Director. "The Holroyd will provide access to the highest quality professional arts projects and performances, as well as providing a much welcome home for community and educational projects."
The theatre is scheduled to open early next year.
