Impromptu Shakespeare

Impromptu Shakespeare

The Bard Come To The Marshes in Morston on Saturday 20th July in aid of Friends of Morston Church.


On Saturday 20th July 2019 at 7.00pm, Friends of Morston Church (in association with ‘Morston Tales & Ales’) proudly present an evening of Elizabethan musical and theatrical entertainment in The Walled Garden, Church Farm House, Morston, NR25 7AA.

The evening promises to be a high quality event, with the inimitable ‘Impromptu Shakespeare’ company “bursting with love, poetry, comedy, tragedy, soliloquies, power struggles, mistaken identity and the supernatural, who buckle on the Bard's britches to bring you an entirely new and improvised Shakespearean-themed play, based on audience suggestions.”

Once audience ideas have been gathered, sit back, relax and enjoy the show. A naturally light-hearted, amusing play will unfold before your very eyes, with deft comic touches, subtle nuances and sheer improvisational skill. So clever are the performers that although the dialogue sounds as if it might have been written by the Bard, it is contemporary enough to be understood by all generations, whether familiar with Shakepeare’s tales or not.

‘Impromptu Shakespeare’ regularly perform at the Edinburgh Fringe and comprise seasoned, talented actors who tour both the UK and overseas in various theatrical guises. Further information can be found on their website:

The exceptional Martin Nathan, performing period pieces on the lute, will provide live music as an ambient accompaniment to your pie (meat or vegetarian) and ale, wine or soft drink.

The event takes place under the stars in the picturesque walled garden of Church Manor Farm – the perfect setting for an unrivalled evening of music, drama, laughter and entertainment.

There will also be a raffle – prizes currently kindly donated include: a ‘Finisterre’ jacket, Seal Boat trip tickets, Champagne, Bottles of wine …..

Tickets are priced at £20.00 for adults, £5.00 for those under 16. Ticket price includes the evening’s entertainment plus a pie and a drink. Further refreshments will be available throughout the night.

Tickets can be purchased from Pete Tibbetts: 01263 741082 (

Proceeds from the event will go to Friends of Morston Church, a registered charity dedicated to raising funds for the maintenance and repair of All Saints Church, Morston, Norfolk (
