Maize Maze at The Toy Barn this summer

The Toy Barn in Sherborne will be running its first ever maize maze this summer. The maze will be open every day between 10am to 5pm (last entry into the maze at 3.30pm).

Refreshments are available and children can play on The Toy Barn’s go-karts, climbing frames, trampolines and swings after exploring the maze.

 Tickets are only available directly from the shop and cost £6 per person (under 3s free) or £20 per group (up to four people).

The Jar Family

A collective of singer/songwriters whose sum of their parts is even more than their individual talents.

Five equally strong front-men and a vast array of carefully crafted songs of multiple genre and tempo from folk to indie rock, the band has attracted lots of interest on the live scene (including supporting Alabama 3 on two UK tours).  This is their second recent visit to Somerset.  Previously they were given a standing ovation at the David Hall, South Petherton, where it was said to have been the best gig at the hall in 14 years.

Miracle Theatre - The Third Policeman

This summer Cornwall's Miracle Theatre ventures into a world somewhere between Alice in Wonderland and Father Ted, where the earth is not round but sausage-shaped; where eccentric policemen fall in love with bicycles and you can visit eternity via a rickety lift, hidden beside a lane in the heart of rural Ireland. With its hilarious characters, streaks of dark humour and unforgettable plot twist, The Third Policeman earned its author, Flann O'Brien, a world-wide reputation as one of Ireland's great comic geniuses. O'Brien's scorching wit and delicious turn of phrase, combined with Miracle's delight in physical comedy and absurdity, has to be a winning combination. Fans of this cult classic and newcomers alike should expect the unexpected as Miracle Theatre return to the Artsreach circuit this summer!

Please note that these are open-air performances. Bring a cushion or rug to sit on, pack a picnic and wear warm/weatherproof clothing as appropriate. Recommended 8+

£12, £8 u18s, £32 family.
