A village fete in Hankelow and three outdoor performances of the Merchant of Venice in Buerton this weekend will have everyone hoping that yesterday's wet weather has provided as much water as the area needs for a little while.

Shakespeare performances in BuertonShakespeare, in the form of the Merchant of Venice, is back in Buerton with three performances this Friday June 12th and Saturday 13th June. There's a 2.00pm matinee and a 7.00pm performance tomorrow and an evening show at 7.00pm on Saturday.

Let's hope that the forecast improvement in the weather is correct because there's no finer way to watch a great play than with a picnic and a glass or two of wine in the magnificent garden at Buerton House. The Dean Taylor Productions have been described as "Every bit as good as The Royal Shakespeare Touring Company's productions" and previous visits to Buerton House have been extremely well received.

The Audlem area is very fortunate that the Dean Taylor Production is back in the area as all the other venues on the company's tour are in much larger centres. The company invites you to come early, bring a picnic and enjoy one of Shakespeare's most popular plays in a wonderful outdoor setting.
