Tempest hits Winchelsea


The Tempest will be performed at Winchelsea on Saturday, June 20, at 7pm in the grounds of St Thomas’ school by the acclaimed travelling theatre group Rain Or Shine. This year’s performance will be the tenth in a series that raises funds for the Winchelsea Bonfire Boyes, writes Richard Comotto. The grounds of the school will open at 6pm and the audience is invited to bring a picnic to have beforehand and at the interval. If the weather does not live up to expectations, the performance will move into St Thomas’ church.
