No Finer Life Theatre Production - Saturday 23rd September 2017

Set in the Oxfordshire countryside at the end of World War Two, rich in tradition and full of vivid, memorable characters. But this is no nostalgic, bucolic ramble.

This is Elizabeth’s story...What inspires a young Somerset land girl to set off in search of a best selling author in the darkest days of war? The story moves between the 1940s and the current day, reflecting that the love of the countryside and the need to protect it are timeless.

Graham Harvey, for twenty years the Agricultural Story Editor of The Archers and writer of more than 600 episodes, brings to the stage the true tale of an unlikely Cotswold hero and an enduring romance.

Timings and pricing TBA.


Ghostly, spooky, there's a Halloween Murder Mystery - Friday 27th October 2017

This evening is a tantalising hotspot of dastardly cunning and delicious deceit. 

Reception drinks start at 7pm in the Library with a glass of sparkling wine on arrival, before being invited to sit down to a three-course meal and meet fellow diners as the murder mystery unfolds....will you reveal the murderer?

Cost per person: £40

Please note this is a very popular event, so we recommend early booking to avoid disappointment, Tickets are available by calling 01494 866811, or email
