A Night at the Races - St Aldhelm's Parish Development Fund in conjunction with the Lions Club of Chippenham.

Hags - A Magical Extravaganza! By Scratchworks Theatre Company

Friday 14 October 7.30pm at Malmesbury Town Hall   

In Bideford in 1682, the final witch trial in Britain took place. Tonight, three fearless females are climbing out of their boxes, shaking off the sequins and investigating what really happened in a small town in North Devon 300 years ago. Packed full of magic tricks, physical comedy & live music, our magiciennes explore the witch-hunt mania that swept the country and sent hundreds of innocent women to the gallows.
