It’s been a year or two since we’ve been out on the road with our St George’s Play because of the pandemic or summat.
In 2020 (with the nation in lockdown) we made a film to replace the live run. Come 2021 (with the nation in lockdown) we’d worked out how to do live streams ‘n’ whatnot and did an online performance over Zoom.
In 2022 (with the nation no longer in lockdown even though it really should be) we’re back where we belong. Performing in the pubs. And the buses we hop into between gigs. And Pete’s chippy in St Wilfrid’s Square. Shurrup! It’s high art, this is.
So! Come out to see us over St George’s Day weekend (Friday 22 – Saturday 23 April 2022). We’ll be doing our thing at the following venues of renown:
Friday 22 April
- The Robin Hood and Little John, Arnold – 8:30 pm
Saturday 23 April
- Sherwood Visitor’s Centre – 12:00 pm (event details here)
- Robin Hood, Lambley – 2:30 pm
- Woodlark, Lambley – 3:15 pm
- Nags Head, Woodborough – 5:00 pm earliest
- Admiral Rodney, Calverton – 7:30 pm earliest
Advertised times are (as ever) only a guide, allowing for leisurely pace of travel between venues proportionate to rate of ale consumption.
Once again we’ll be aiming to raise a lovely wodge of cash for a great cause and this year will be performing in support of the Trussell Trust. The charity supports a nationwide network of food banks to provide emergency food and support to people locked in poverty. It also campaigns for change to end the need for food banks in the UK.
Please donate generously when the dripping pans come round (or via our JustGiving page here).
Also, remember to cheer loudly at that dead funny bit where St George stands on the dragon’s cobblers.
That never gets old.
