The company will also stage Little Women at Wrest Park on July 31.

The timeless story is based on the classic novel by Louisa May Alcott.

Four sisters - Jo, Beth, Meg and Amy - tell the story of their life during the Civil War in America.

It is a story full of romance, love, passion and friendship, where hope will always outdo heartache and hardship for those with the courage to follow their dreams.

The tale of these four sisters is brought to life in a brand-new adaptation from Chapterhouse, featuring glorious period costume, traditional live music and a story of self-discovery to warm your heart.

Doors open at 6.30pm, with the show starting at 7.30pm.
