Not Beeton by snow!


Chelmarsh Parish Hall booked Alison Neil to perform her acclaimed piece ‘Mrs Beeton, My Sister’ in December 2017, but it had to be cancelled due to heavy snow. It was rearranged for March 2018… and again had to be cancelled due to snow. Organisers are crossing their fingers that the rescheduled show on Sunday 2 September will not again fall prey to inclement weather…

The show tells of the story of Isabella Beeton through the eyes of her sister Bessie. They were the eldest in a family of 21 children. Quiet and obedient, Isabella fell for a charming publisher, Sam Beeton, and, aged only 21, she started writing the works that became her famous cookery book. She was dead by the age of 28, but her book lives on, still in print and often outselling all books other than The Bible. The show will be preceded by afternoon tea at 5pm. Call 01746 862850 for tickets, which are £12 for adults and £8 for children. Call 01746 862104 or visit artsalive.co.uk for more information.
