A play that tells the story of life in an English village at the turn of the 19th century is brought to the stage thanks to students at the Neale Wade.
Lark Rise to Candleford is set in the countryside of north-east Oxfordshire and Buckinghamshire, and tells the tale of the life of author Flora Thompson.
The stories were written forty years after the events she describes and identify the period as a pivotal point in rural history.
It was a time when the quiet, close-knit and peaceful rural community, governed by the seasons, began a transformation, through agricultural mechanisation through to better communications and urban expansion.
Rehearsals have started for the play which runs from April 16 to 18 at 7.30pm in the main hall.
