Hedgespoken presents IRON-BROW AND THORN-COAT

This performance takes place on a stage in the beautiful setting of West Town Farm, Ide, near Exeter (EX2 9TG). 

There are a few ticket options:

ADULT [£12] (FULL PRICE) - age 16+
ADULT [£8] (CONCESSION) - age 16+
CHILD [£5] - age 5-16
FAMILY [£30] (FULL PRICE) - two adults and up to three children (5-16)
FAMILY [£25] (CONCESSION) - two adults and up to three children (5-16)

Please note - these are all eTickets - you won't be sent anything in the post, so just bring your name and your order number to the gate on the day (your email address is great too, just to be on the safe side.)

The show will begin promptly at 3pm, so do make sure to arrive in good time to park (parking will be in the camping field where the performance is, but it'll be well-signed.) Doors are at 2.30pm. In the event of the weather being really rubbish, we'll do the performance in the huge barn on the farm - either way, it'll be a great delight to visit West Town Farm!

The farm will be running a food and drink stall and there are compost loos in the field and more conventional facilities on the farm. Disabled access is limited, so get in touch with the farm for details. No dogs, thanks. Bring a chair or a blanket.

“When the sea-foam is red at the end of the Earth, only then will you see me again ~ until that time, you will wander the world and all that you touch will turn to iron...”

Once upon a time, there was a forest... 

In the forest, strange changes can take place. There may be kings and queens and princesses and witches, and common folk going about their business, not to mention all the animals. A lot is going on. Love can be found, and lost, and found again. There’s talk of the farthest sea, of a desert of fire beyond the forest, but these are probably just rumours...

Once upon a time, there was a forest...
