Alice in Wonderland | Outdoor Theatre

Sunday 3rd July

This summer on Sunday the 3rd July at 4pm, The Common Players encounter Lewis Carrol via Monty Python and welcome you to the madness and mayhem of Wonderland at Coldharbour Mill!

Expect larger than life characters, puppets, live music, dancing and lashings of absurdity.

The Queen of Hearts is on the war path…It’s down to Alice to save everyone’s head by throwing her a tea-party along with the help of her new friends…a Turtle who’d rather be singing, a Cook with a pepper addiction, a Hatter who’s quite mad, a Rabbit with a time keeping problem and one very naughty Cat….what could go wrong?

Gather your friends and family, visit the Grist Mill Bar Café for refreshments, bring a blanket or chair to sit on and join us down the rabbit hole.
Don’t be late, it’s a very important date!

Sunday 30th October

Join us for a day of steam, spooks and scares…

If you dare, take on our Ghost trail of Coldharbour Mill – you will even meet some ghosts and hear their spooky stories first-hand – If ghosts aren’t for you, then maybe you will be able to help us find all of the pumpkins we seem to have misplaced at the Mill. If you find them all there might just be a treat (or trick) at the end.

In the Fox Gallery join our resident ghouls as they help us design some pretty crazy monsters!
