  • Age Guidance:14+
  • Duration:1.5hours including an interval

Signal Fires: Westleton, a LIVE outdoor theatre event, part of a national festival of fires!

Join us by the fireside for some good old fashioned storytelling, featuring readings from Eastern Angles' favourites Sally Ann Burnett, Jon Tavener, Artistic Director Ivan Cutting and introducing Marcie Burnett.

In the spirit of doing what theatre does best, Eastern Angles' legendary Stage Manager, Penny Griffin, will be creating a brilliant technical fire for us all to enjoy. It will look impressive but won't keep you warm... so bring your chairs & blankets and cosy up by the fireside.

Tickets free of charge via Westleton Village Hall. Either call in to the Hall Mon-Fri 10am - 1pm or phone Dilys Hall on 01728 648166.
