2016 is a very exciting year in Hathersage – it is Charlotte Brontë’s 200th birthday!  To celebrate Jane Eyre, the novel that made Hathersage famous, the Hathersage Players are performing an adaptation of the romantic masterpiece with its focus very much on Jane and Rochester.  In honour of the closeness between the story and the village, we will perform four nights in the Memorial Hall, Hathersage (7.30pm on Wednesday 18th May to Saturday 21st May) and a special open air Gala Night in the grounds of North Lees Hall, Hathersage – Brontë’s inspiration for Thornfield Hall (6:30pm on Saturday 2nd July).  The Gala Night is intended to be a ‘Glyndebourne experience’, where picnics on blankets with a touch of glamour is the order of the day.  We do hope you can join us.

Please check our website www.hathersageplayers.org for details and tickets.  Tickets are available at £9 (£7 concessions) for the May performances from www.ticketsource.co.uk/hathersageplayers or from Jon and Debbie Michaels on 01433 650863.  If you follow the link from our website there is no booking fee.  Details of tickets for July 2nd will be published later.
