A Feast of ShakespeareSamarès Players present a unique evening of Shakespearean entertainment for their summer production. To celebrate William Shakespeare’s 450th birthday they have broken with their traditional summer play and are presenting an evening of music, song, sonnets and speeches with a splendid banquet under cover in the Samarès Herb Garden Café.
Chef and proprietor of the Café, Ian Florence, is cooking venison and fresh summer vegetables for main course. The audience on arrival will be offered canapés and a glass of wine or soft drink. During this time Cally Noel and her Elizabethan music group, Bellisima, will be entertaining you before you are seated for the main event. Karen Syvret and friends will be singing some of Shakespeare’s songs and a group of the regular Samarès Players will be reciting speeches and sonnets for your delight. Dessert will be a lemon verbena mousse and at the end of the evening you will be sent on your way with mulled cider or a soft alternative. Jugs of excellent house wine and soft drinks will be available for purchase on the night. Please note that only alcohol served or bought on the premises will be allowed to be consumed.
Members of the Samarès Players will entertain the revelers with speeches, sonnets and poetry. Director Jane Wakeham has chosen ‘Love’ as the theme for the evening; there will also be a quiz to challenge your knowledge of the Bard.
