Director Marlene Tincknell said: “Imagine a pretty village with thatched roof cottages, a village green, a cricket team and an annual fete. Every year they hold a traditional fete with all the standard components. Country produce competition, cake tent, beer tent etc. Then put in the usual suspects of characters. Add in a celebrity to open the fete, a pompous chairman, a Viking re-enactor and a competitive vicar and you have the perfect scenario for A Fete Worse Than Death.

“Actor Ray Martin is opening the village fete, playing on his fame as TV detective Inspector Brady. Little does he know that ambition, infidelity and marrow envy will lead to murder and he’ll be left to solve the murder – without a script!”

Cast includes Deborah Addicott, Helen Chewter, Jason Evans, Gordon Keys, Jenny Pickering, Martin Sworn and Robbie Tolhurst.

The next production will be Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen, adapted and directed by Nadya Henwood with performances of the play running from November 13 -16.
