New benches, barbecue stand and bin being installed at Eyes Meadow

New benches, barbecue stand and bin being installed at Eyes Meadow

Posted: Wed, 18 May 2022 17:00 by Jackie Clements

Five new picnic benches are set to be installed at Eyes Meadow next week, in time for the Jubilee bank holiday weekend.

Over time the existing picnic benches had become damaged, partly due to the use of disposable barbecues but also from general weathering and wear and tear.

The new steel benches (see pic) are in addition to a new brick stand for the use of barbecues and new metal bin for their safe disposal, so as to reduce the risk of fire and damage to the grass and surrounding areas. More »

We kindly ask that visitors respect the Meadow and reduce the risks of fire by never leaving barbecues unattended, not placing them on the grass, ensuring they are fully extinguished after use and either taking them home or disposing of them in the new bin provided; and by ensuring all other rubbish is placed in the other bins nearby or taken home. » Less

Outdoor Theatre at Eyes Meadow 10th July: Illyria performs "Peter Pan" by J.M. Barrie - tickets now available

Outdoor Theatre at Eyes Meadow 10th July: Illyria performs "Peter Pan" by J.M. Barrie - tickets now available

Posted: Wed, 11 May 2022 15:29 by Jackie Clements

Award-winning Outdoor Theatre Company, Illyria, brings Peter Pan, by J.M. Barrie, to Eyes Meadow, Duffield on 10th July, 2022 - the show starts at 2pm.

Following the successful production in 2021 of The Further Adventures of Doctor Dolittle, Illyria is back in 2022 with the classic story of Peter Pan.

Wendy Darling is certain she saw the face of a boy at her bedroom window 3 floors up – yet no-one believes her. So who can blame her when she agrees to fly away to the idyllic Neverland with him? But is Neverland as perfect as it seems? Or will the evil Captain Hook and his band of pirates kill Peter and rule over it themselves? More »

Peter Pan was first performed by Illyria in 1997. It has been performed outdoors many times since by many different companies. But Illyria's 2022 production will be the first to feature REAL flying!

Now in its 31st year, Illyria has delighted audiences the length and breadth of the UK, and in the Netherlands, Germany, Switzerland, France, the United States and Canada performing some of the most well-loved productions on offer. The company has won 4 international "Best Performance" awards and attracted numerous "5-star" and "Critics' Choice" reviews for the lively clarity of its approach to Shakespeare's plays, the high quality of its family shows and the refreshingly quirky originality of its English classics adaptations and Gilbert & Sullivan musicals.

Please bring your own seating/rug and suitable clothing. Catering will be available at the venue, or bring your own picnic.

Tickets are now available from www.illyria.co.uk and cost £7.50 adult; £4 child (5-16), under 5s FREE (but still need a ticket - available on the website). Gates open at 1:00pm. Performance approx. 1hr 40mins (inc 20 minute interval) Suitable for all ages, approx 5+.

Cancellation in the event of dangerous weather only, when performance will be rescheduled. Tickets are non-refundable, except where a Covid lockdown is in place. Booking fees apply. Entry 'on the door' will be available only if any tickets are still unsold on the day of the performance.

"Peter Pan" is presented by arrangement with Great Ormond Street Hospital Children's Charity and Concord Theatricals Ltd. on behalf of Samuel French Ltd. www.concordtheatricals.co.uk » Less
