The Tale of Ales – Postponed

Postponed: The Tale of Ales: previously billed as the Festival of Pubs due to be held on Saturday 28th August 2021.

It has been said before but we do live in strange times! Our resident playwright, the brilliant and creative Penny Bernard has set us up for a rollicking event, the Tale of Ales. Many of you will have experienced the sheer joy Penny brings to the village with her annual pantomime for the New Ash Players.
With a series of true stories about the characters who lived and worked at our many village pubs (14) in days gone by, Penny’s Tale of Ales has some fascinating true storylines for the Players.
We had hoped the Players would entertain audiences on the August Bank Holiday 2021 with a series of historical wandering performances around the village Pubs, past and present.
Sadly, due to too many uncertainties raised by the current pandemic situation we believe it is best to postpone this event until at least 2022. We will return to give you more information in 2022
