It’s the first day of harvest at the end of the 19th century, in the isolated hamlet of Lark Rise. Through the eyes of young Laura we witness the hard but happy lives of the people who work the land. A few years later, in the second play, we meet Laura again, working in the Post Office at Candleford. Here at the centre of the community, we are introduced to the people who live and work there, sharing the joyous moments that turn into real fulfilment and pleasure.

This lively ensemble production full of music and song records a disappearing way of life in lyrical but realistic detail.

Free cream tea offer

If you book for either of the two double-bill opportunities (Saturday 14 and Saturday 21 October), for the matinee of Lark Rise at 2.30 pm and the evening performance of Candleford at 7.30 pm, you will be entitled to a free cream tea in the break between the performances.

If booking online, look for the special 'combined' ticket option available for each of those days; if booking by phone or in person at St George's Music Shop, please point out that you want the combined ticket.
