NOTE - Ticket sales from this site will stop at 3.30pm this afternoon. If you would like to come, but don't have a ticket after that time, if there's  no sold-out message here, you are welcome to come along and buy one on the door, but we cannot 100% guarantee that there will be bench-space, so bring a blanket to sit on, or a folding chair, and there will come a point where we're full. Doors are officially at 6.45, but we'll be open and ready for you by 6.30, so come as early as you can to ensure you get a ticket and/or a seat. Thank you!

This performance takes place on a stage in the beautiful setting of The Glade on the Dartington Hall estate. For this special Lammas performance, we've enlisted The Kitchen Table of Totnes to cook up a feast for us to enjoy after the show - we'd be delighted if you chose to join us! Delicious tagines are rumoured to be going on sale - also refreshments such as chai and fizzy drinks - if you'd like something stronger, do please bring your own to enjoy with the feast.

“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...
