Chesterfield’s Gilbert & Sullivan Society present ‘Merrie England’

Set in the period after the defeat of the Spanish Armada and during May Day celebrations, Merrie England tells a tale of the rivalry of Sir Walter Raleigh & the Earl of Essex for the affections and attentions of Queen Elizabeth I.

With a small orchestra, Tudor costumes and stirring songs and music – including the well known “Yeomen of England”, “Oh Peaceful England” and “Dan Cupid hath a Garden” – this is an entertainment not to be missed.

Directed by Nic Wilson.

Tickets available from Chesterfield Visitor Information Centre, Rykneld Square, S40 1SB

Please note – this performance will be given at The Parish Rooms, Milken Ln, S45 0BA
