Have your say

LAST week, Chapterhouse Theatre Company took to the grounds of Woburn Abbey for a performance of the Austin classic Emma.

This Saturday evening the company returns to the idyllic setting – this time delivering A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

So, as with last week, pack up your blankets and picnics (but remember the brolly too...obviously) and settle back for The Bard’s best-loved romantic comedy.

The story will take you to the most magical of forests, where star-crossed lovers, playful fairies and raucous travelling players come together making for one of the most frolicsome evening’s of summer.

Tickets are £13.50 for adults, with discounted prices for children and senior citizens.

Call to book on 01525 290333.

Gates open at 5pm for picnickers, the show starts at 7pm.

> MIKRON Theatre Company are the only theatre company in the world to tour the inland waterways by narrowboat, taking live theatre to some off-kilter venues.

This week, as part of their 40th anniversary tour, Mikron are back in MK, for another delivery of Losing The Plot, which made the cover of this GO! section earlier in the year.

The story of love, life and allotments will be shown in Bradville allotments on Saturday, from 3pm.

It’s perfect timing too – this week is officially National Allotment Week!

> KEEN skaters will want to head to Xscape to see the new skate park that has just reared its head on site.

Try out the impressive blocks, rails and ledges for yourselves, and check back for demos and workshops which will be happening while the park is up and running, through to August 26.

If you fancy having a go, but are new to the art, worry not – a nursery ramp for beginners is waiting for you, and there are speciality sessions for BMX and scooters...

You’ll have to go a wheely long way to find something better...

> GOING batty in Emberton Park has nowt to do with a certain Nora Batty and Last of the Summer Wine.

It’s actually an opportunity to explore the park after dark in search of the nocturnal creatures, this Saturday evening.

Bat detectors will be used as participants seek out the creatures of the night.

The two hour session will begin at 8.30pm, and admission is free, although usual car parking charges will apply.
