A performance of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream has raised £800 for farm conservation group the Game & Wildlife Conservation Trust (GWCT).

The Castle Theatre Company performance, which took place at Glemham Hall, near Saxmundham, on July 3, also raised funds for St Elizabeth Hospice in Ipswich.

The event included an open air picnic in the early evening, and further money was raised by a raffle during the interval.

GWCT regional organiser Lizzie Herring said they very much hoped to see more Shakespeare at Glemham in 2018.

“This was a typically splendid production from the Castle Theatre Company, and we had perfect weather to enjoy the play and the gardens. It was a wonderful evening’s entertainment that will directly benefit our countryside,” she said.
