This is a very exciting year in Hathersage - it’s Charlotte Bronte’s 200th birthday!
To celebrate Jane Eyre, the novel that made their village famous, the Hathersage Players are performing an adaptation of the romantic tale with its focus very much on Jane and Rochester.
The players will present their creation at Hathersage Memorial Hall for four nights, from May 18 to 21 at 7.30pm.
There will also be an open-air gala night performance on Saturday, July 2, at 6.30pm in the grounds of North LeesHall, Hathersage, which was the inspiration for Rochester’s home Thornfield Hall.
The production has been further adapted for the stage by Rob Hall from the original adaptation by Charles Vance.
Tickets for the indoor performances at Hathersage Memorial Hall next week cost £9 and £7 (concessions), available from www.ticketsource.co.uk/ hathersageplayers or call Jon and Debbie Michaels on 01433 650863,
