Saturday 4th July remained blissfully fine for Lamyatt’s fifth presentation of a professionally acted Shakespeare play in the garden at Speeds Farm. A record audience of around 400 people attended and gave the most positive feedback on the evening’s entertainment. The Festival Players rose brilliantly to the absurdities of As You Like It, drawing peals of laughter from the crowd – not least from the many children present.
With a record contribution from generous sponsors, increased expenses were covered and again a substantial sum was donated to both Lamyatt Church and Village Hall. Enormous thanks must go to David and Simone for hosting the event once again and to the wonderful committee members and helpers – not forgetting Jen and Ern who provided the field for parking – for ensuring the success of this inspiring annual event.
