Great Chalfield Manor – Historic Country House in Wiltshire

It would be difficult to find a more beautiful medieval manor house in England than Great Chalfield. Set in the tranquil Wiltshire countryside and with seven acres of gardens, this ancient house has survived the five centuries since its building and appears much as it did in the 1470's, when it was commissioned for the Wiltshire landowner Thomas Tropenell.


“As You Like It”   by William Shakespeare

Friends of Great Chalfield is an Association of 100 local members who support maintenance and development of the Arts & Crafts gardens with events

The Malford Players will perform:

“As You Like It” 
 by William Shakespeare

in the Great Hall at Great Chalfield,  at 7.30 pm on

Saturday 23rd &  Sunday 24th September 2017

'As You Like It' follows Malford Players most enjoyable performances of Twelfth Night and Comedy of Errors in 2013 and 2015. This is a great opportunity to enjoy Shakespeare’s well loved comedy in a Medieval Hall like those in which his works were first performed.

It is a story of lost love, hidden love, mislaid love, open love and outright bawdiness; with a little sibling rivalry thrown in for good measure. Shakespeare's prose and poetry delights, inspires, intrigues and entertains in equal measure from the lips of a broad host of  characters.

This production will be set in the Civil War Period when Great Chalfield was  occupied by a Parliamentary Garrison 375 years ago. The soldier who cleaned the same hall and tables as today, was then paid 3 shillings a week.
