Those Who Served

An evening of inspiring tales of service and sacrifice made by the men and women of Porlock and the Vale during the First World War.

1st November 2018 

The Museum Players were formed over 12 years ago, to bring the history of the village to a modern audience through story, song and poetry; marauding Vikings, Crusaders, seafaring men, and women patiently knitting for the troops in WWI have all featured. Originally conceived, written and directed by the Curator Lita Strampp, the Players first performed in the Great Hall to an audience limited to only 21. When the Museum was renovated in 2008, a larger audience could be accommodated  in the Solar and in 2016 Christine De Vere Hunt took over role of writer and director. It is a credit to the Players that tickets are much sought after.
