BP still active in Lockdown! 19 Mar 2021 (Bartholomew Players) Listen to our radio version of The Battle of Fyfield, written by local playwright Nick Smith

I hope you have managed to stay well during this difficult year and that you are looking forward to coming out of lockdown as much as we are!

We are busy thinking about our November production & relishing the prospect of treading the boards again. In the meantime a group of members have recorded a marvellous play written by one of our own members, Nick Smith, for your listening pleasure.

Nick lives in the village of Fyfield and is part of a group called FLAG who have (successfully!) been battling the housing planners who are trying to build yet another large housing estate in the Fyfield area. Who knows whether his play contributed to the recent decision by the Vale of White Horse to reject the plans - we'd like to think so!

With a central theme of fighting housing blight, it weaves strands of village & family life with humour & drama. The link below takes you to our website. So sit down, relax & hit the play button....

Looking forward to seeing you all again soon,
Denise Santilli
Publicity Officer, Bartholomew Players, Eynsham
