A SPECIAL performance being staged in Clare to celebrate the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee will offer the audience an interesting window into the lives of English kings and queens.

John Barton’s The Hollow Crown will be staged at Clare Town Hall at the end of the month thanks to the efforts of joint producers, Stour Valley Community School and Clare’s Ancient House Museum, plus performers drawn from both the school and the town.

The Hollow Crown was first devised for the Royal Shakespeare Company in 1961 and comprises poetry, speeches, letters and other writings.

Richard Smith, chairman of the Ancient House Museum, said: “This is a marvellous opportunity to bring our new school and community together in celebrating the English monarchy.”

The performance will take place at 7pm on Monday, May 28.

Tickets are priced at £5 for adults and £3 for children and can be bought from Hudgies Hardware and The Hare’s Tail, both in the High Street, or from MM Smith, The Old Bank House, 18 Market Hill, Clare.
