See Alice in Wonderland performed at Stanstead Bury Farm, Stanstead Abbotts on Friday 24th June at 6.30pm.
To see a rabbit is nothing remarkable… To hear it comment upon the time is quite remarkable… To follow it down a rabbit-hole into a strange new world not knowing how you’ll get out again is something extraordinarily remarkable indeed!
As Alice encounters the weird, wacky and wonderful characters who live in the world at the other end of the rabbit-hole, she’ll experience an adventure like never before! Finding her way home again won’t be an easy task and it will definitely make her rethink all her thoughts she has previously thought!
Please note the following: – Bottles allowed but plastic glasses only. – Toilets available in the Parish Hall. – Event will go ahead whatever the weather. – Limited parking – please walk if you can. – Please bring a rubbish bag for your picnic litter.
Supported by: St John the Baptist Church, Generous Donation, Great Amwell Parish Council, Great Amwell Parish Hall, The Amwell Society.

The planned small expansion of housing in the village at Netherfield Lane off Roydon Road gives us the opportunity to discover more of our history courtesy of the land owners and former large-scale village employers, Websters Ltd.
Their continuing 50-year long involvement with the village will include financing a 5-day professional Archaeological Dig starting on June 20th in an area that has revealed evidence of our ancestors going back 8,000 years. If you can afford a day or the whole week, and whether you are experienced or not, you are invited to take a ‘hands-on’ look into the history of the village.
