On a summer’s evening early in July, Ian and Marion Gordon-Finlayson host, in their garden, a production by the touring theatre company “The Miracle Theatre”.
The event is open to villagers and non-villagers alike and all proceeds go to charity. A bar, ice creams, coffee & sweetie bar, WC and free parking are available.
