AN award-winning travelling theatre company is returning to Winsford with a ‘hill-arious’ show organisers are sure will be a sell-out.

The talented players from Mikron Theatre will perform their current production, Common Ground – Rambling and Our Rights of Way, at Winsford Academy Theatre, Grange Lane, on Friday, September 13.

Common Ground tells the story of the Pendale and District Ramblers, who are looking forward to celebrating ‘in stile’ on their 50th anniversary walk, but the path has been blocked by the landowner.

Their quest for freedom and fresh air won’t be easy, as they navigate bulls, beavers, and wandering sheep.

The evening is being hosted by the Friends of Winsford Town Park, with proceeds going towards the upkeep of the park.

Chairman of the Friends, John Malam, said: “Grab your boots and waterproof for a meander with Mikron on a hike through history.

"It's a hill-arious ramble through the history of land access in England from the Norman Conquest to loitering in lockdown, via the infamous mass trespass at Kinder Scout on April 4, 1932.”

Mikron specialises in touring towns without their own theatre, bringing first-class professional drama wherever the call takes them – more often than not, on their own canal boat.

Their shows tend to be four-handers, with actor-musicians near the beginning of their professional careers taking several roles in each show, including that of the band.

John added: “Early booking is strongly recommended as Mikron perform to capacity audiences in Winsford.”

The show begins 7.30pm and tickets cost £14 or £12 for concessions. Family tickets are also available for £35, and cover two adults and two children under 16.
