Tagline
“Come with us by moonlight, starshine, fire’s glow and, with a lucky stone, we’ll find drowned land, shapeshifting seals, know the secrets of the past, present and what is to come, it’s trickery territory

Description
The innovative village of Bergh Apton, Norfolk hosted a promenade performance of four traditional ‘Mystery Plays’ with live theatre springing up in leafy locations on Sat 24th May, Sun 1st June and Sun 8th June 2014.

What followed was a nomination for an EDP Norfolk Art Award and a groundswell of anticipation for what would follow such a success.

The next production “Midwinter Dreaming,” a play to celebrate the coming of the Light and Candlemas, was performed in January/February 2016 to sell out audiences.

Our new production “Songline for Doggerland,” will bring together again the creative visions that helped realise “Midwinter Dreaming.” This includes the international writer and story-teller, Hugh Lupton, who has written the play in collaboration with the community, Charlotte Arculus, who will direct the stars of our show, and Mary Lovett, our musical director. Liz McGowan, a renowned Environmental Artist, will lend her skills to the production to create stunning visuals for the audience.

Come and hear of the Selkies, the Victorian geologists and a guided tour into the future. An evening of enchantment with singers, musicians, players and the Rude Mechanicals with their smoke and mirrors! Remember what you think you see is not always so.

A feast for eye, ear and mind. 

N.B. ALTHOUGH THE PLAY TAKES PLACE AT BERGH APTON CHURCH, PARKING FOR THE EVENT IS AT BERGH APTON VILLAGE HALL. PLEASE SEE MAP AND DIRECTIONS BELOW. THERE IS NO PARKING AVAILABLE AT THE CHURCH.

18:45 Arrive Bergh Apton Village Hall (COOKES ROAD, BERGH APTON NR15 1AA) for transport to the wooded plains of Doggerland. Remember to beware of honeyed tongues! On arrival in Doggerland, gather for a welcoming drink and, by firelight and starlight, await the wonders to begin. When all is ended you will be returned to the everyday world and your car.
