Wassail and The Octagon Theatre Yeovil present
Apples & Angels
“The problem with never giving up is that forever’s a long time.”
Pete’s organising a wedding for the Mallard family at Burrow Hill but the bride’s disappeared!
Two years ago to the day, Pete married Babs in a glorious, tragic wedding where something similar happened. Today Muriel, Pete and Babs find themselves at the bottom of Burrow Hill, looking for the things they’ve lost and so much more.
Can Lil help them before the spirits of the orchard converge and it’s all too late?
Over the past five years, Wassail has been taking audiences on magical storytelling adventures through Pete & Ivan’s Tours of Somerset: via horse-drawn carts, three-wheel bikes and on foot.
This is the final chapter of Pete’s story, and the start of a whole new adventure. If this is your first tour with Pete, you’re in safe hands. Mostly!
Apples & Angels is an open-air promenade event celebrating the power of human connection and the communities that surround us.
The performance takes place among the idyllic orchards of Burrow Hill, situated at Somerset Cider Brandy Company in Kingsbury Episcopi, South Somerset. Audiences and performers will traverse uneven grassy ground come rain or shine. This performance will comply with the latest Government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, to ensure the safety of our cast and audiences. Sturdy footwear and weather appropriate clothing is recommended.
This is a 'PAY WHAT YOU CHOOSE' event. We will be inviting you to make donations after the show. Suggested ticket prices are - £2, £5 or £10 which we can only accept in cash after the performance. You can also donate in advance at the top of this page (see 'Donate').
We understand that everyone is experiencing different financial circumstances. Whatever you feel able to spend, actors will be fully paid for their work.
