Residents of North Lichfield will be able to use their local community mini bus to go and see a professional theatre production of Lark Rise to Candleford at Hurley Village Hall in North Warwickshire on Saturday 19 March.
Following the success of the recent award winning BBC television series, New Perspectives Theatre Company present a captivating new stage adaption of Flora Thompson’s classic which tells the story of young Laura Timms who sets out from the tiny village of Lark Rise to start a new life in nearby Candleford. She finds herself torn between her love of the countryside and the lure of the town, the traditions of the past and the promise of the future.
This pilot project has been organised by Live & Local in collaboration with Lichfield District Council’s Community Transport Team. The trip will be co-ordinated by Volunteer Ambassador, Kim Wilkins who also manages Curborough Community Centre.
