Dovery Manor Museum

ALL ABOARD!                       Friday and Saturday 20th and 21st October


For two evenings only, the celebrated Museum Players present this year's play  'All Aboard!',  to complement the summer exhibition 'Seas of Change'.

Chris De Vere Hunt has penned another wonderful interpretation of the history of this small community, with a trip on the old Blue Motor Bus Service from Porlock Weir. The play will be enacted in the 'Solar'; the spacious room on the first floor of Dovery Manor Museum. Although the word 'spacious' is used, it must be taken as relative to the size of the building and seats are limited! So to avoid disappointment, early booking really is advised.

Venue:     'The Solar'    at Dovery Manor Museum
Time:        7.30pm
Tickets:    £5.00  available at Porlock Visitor Centre (includes wine/canapes before the performance & coffee/chocolates after).
