Jane Austen and David Walliams will make fun if unlikely bedfellows at Brockholes nature reserve this summer.

First up on the outdoor stage at the Lancashire Wildlife Trust reserve this Sunday, June 21, is laughter, daylight snobbery and swooning with Jane Austen’s Emma.

The tangled affairs of Miss Woodhouse will provide amusement as she manoeuvres friends and acquaintances into romances, while losing sight of her own affections –and all the time she is warned about meddling by reluctant hero George Knightley.

The Heartbreak Productions play will be in the meadow by the car park from 5pm. People should take their own seating or blankets to sit on.

The next performance will be an adaptation of David Walliams’ popular children’s book Mr Stink on Sunday August 2.

Pre-booking for both events is essential. Call 01772 872000 for tickets £13.50, £9 concs, £39 family ticket (two adults two children.
