Forthcoming Events for 2017:

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 2015 and 2013. 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.

'As You Like 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.
