    William Shakespeare - the greatest playwright the world has ever seen? Or a fraud? In a superb and very funny one-man show, Royal Shakespeare Company actor Nicholas Collett takes audiences on a journey through the life of the world's most famous writer: his childhood, his glory days at the Globe, his ardent defence of his reputation. Mingling biography with snapshots of Elizabethan life and snippets from his plays, and packed with emotional punches and entertaining punchlines, this is a piece of pure theatre magic.

    A fabulous two-header delivered by wonderfully gifted performers, the compelling and masterful storyteller Cat Weatherill and the satirical and hilarious deadpan comic Naomi Paul.

    This uproarious, critically acclaimed one-man musical-comedy tells of Charles Darwin's revolutionary discovery of the secrets of evolution.

    Every Wednesday we will be discovering and helping wildlife right on our doorstep, from building bug hotels and making a toad habitat, to making feeders for birds and planting flowers for bees. Don't forget to bring appropriate clothing as we will be getting mucky outdoors in all weathers. Activities will last 30-60 minutes leaving you to then enjoy the rest of the farm park.
