Belper Players are taking to the great outdoors to revive their first ever production 75 years ago – A Midsummer Night’s Dream in the town’s Memorial Gardens.

It marks the pinnacle of the society’s 75th anniversary celebrations and director Sarah Eyre hopes audiences will make it an event to remember.

She said that although it’s not the full version of the play, all the favourite elements are there, from eloping lovers to mischievous fairies and a group of workmen with their own acting ambitions.

“Despite Belper Players’ beginnings, it’s a new departure for us to perform outdoors,” said Sarah.

The play will be performed in the Memorial Gardens, King Street, from today, July 28, to Saturday, July 30. Tickets are £6 and are available from Joyce Towle on 01335 370827. Tickets are available for families (two adults, two children) for £20.
