It is Midsummer Night and no time for dreaming as the good folk of the rugged hill-top kingdom of Lancre prepare to celebrate the wedding of King Verence and Miss Magrat Garlick, spinster and witch.

Visitors arrive from far and wide for the royal nuptials and the Lancre Morris Men are ready to entertain the guests. As the crop circles open across the land, less welcome visitors are poised to invade. Can Magrat shake off the influence of the old witches Granny Weatherwax and Granny Ogg and fight for her man? Can she defeat the Queen of the Elves? Who will be 'well met by moonlight'?

A theatrical adaptation of Sir Terry's comic fantasy with witches, elves, wizards, lovers, rude mechanicals and the world's second greatest lover - but definitely no monkeys!

The kingdom of Lancre will be transposed to the Balsam Centre on Saturday, 16 June at 7.30pm.

Gates open for picnics from 6.00pm.Tickets are available at the Balsam Centre, in advance £9.00 (full), £8.00 (60+), £3.00 (students/unwaged). £1.00 premium on the door.
