What’s on in York: Hoglets Theatre Presents A Midsummer Night’s Mischief at Acomb Explore

Wednesday May 29th @ 11:00 am – 11:45 am

£4

All is not well in the woods. The Fairies are at war. The battle lines are drawn so it’s time to pick a side. Who will you choose? Team Titania or Oberon’s crew?Come on down! It’s all kicking off in the forest!

Hoglets Theatre presents a raucous, interactive, larger-than-life new production based on Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Expect wild characters, raucous singalong songs, puppets, stunts, and some frankly ridiculous disco dancing!

A MIDSUMMER NIGHT’S MISCHIEF is a play designed especially for young children (with recommended ages being 2-8 years old – but everyone is welcome). And whilst we love the bard, no previous experience of Shakespeare is required!

Tickets £4.00 from any Explore library or call 01904 552828.  All children must be accompanied by a paying Adult. Babes in arms (under 2’s) free with a paying adult. Booking essential.

Building works annoy Front Street residents

Works have started on the demolition of the bowling green buildings on Front Street. Planning permission was granted last year which allows developers to build 10 houses there.

The proposals were highly controversial as they ruled out a coordinated development which would have secured the future of the Council owned land (former allotments) to the rear of the library car park as well as the open aspect at the back of Chancery Court. A holistic approach was favoured by those residents who completed an opinion survey.

The planning committee inexplicably agreed a Section 106 contribution to the provision of alternative sports/green space facilities but at a site located in the Holgate area.

Now local residents are complaining about the noise and disturbance being caused by the contractors. It has been suggested that the contractors are trespassing on the Council owned land, which itself has a nature conservation role.

Residents have called on local Councillors to take action to ensure that the contractors respect the amenity of neighbouring properties

The future of the former allotments site needs to be clarified quickly by the Council which has owned it for over 10 years.

It was slated to be an extension to the library incorporating a “pocket park” to retain a green aspect for the benefit of the Front Street area.

However no progress has been made on that project.
