A British institution – the country fete. Home to fascist jam makers, murderous marrow growers, ‘special’ Brownies and enough bunting to cause a national fabric shortage. It’s a pillar of country life, a melting pot of personalities, and the British summer wouldn’t be the same without it.
Russell Kane, Perrier award-winning stand up shows and Fakespeare plays, teams up with award-winning composer and lyricist Michael Bruce and Bush Associate Director Anthea Williams (suddenlossofdignity.com and 50 Ways to Leave Your Lover).
