Chris Utley has stepped down from providing the news from Cottesbrooke. It would be really good to continue to hear from Cottesbrooke, so if you have a story or a picture that would be of interest to your fellow villagers and neighbours, please get in touch and we can send out our roving reporter!

You can contact us by email editorial@villagelink.org.uk or you can phone Richard Hollingum on 07887 652599


In  the last edition of Village Link, we told you about the exciting rocket launch and included a picture of a child holding the said rocket. The child was just one of those attending the launch and in fact the rocket is owned by Science teacher Stefan Croft. Village link apologises for any confusion caused.

7pm—9pm, picnics from 5pm

 A shipwreck washes the court of Milan up onto a mysterious desert island, inhabited by magicians, sprites and monsters, where nothing is as it seems…..

Handlebards travelling players are again visiting Cottesbrooke and will be performing Shakespeare’s ‘The Tempest’ in the gardens at Cottesbrooke Hall on Saturday, 20th July.  

These cycling actors carry all the set, props and costume needed to perform their extremely energetic, charmingly chaotic and environmentally sustainable Shakespeare plays across the globe.

They specialise in outdoor theatre, as they love performing in the open air, but are quite happy performing almost anywhere.

Handlebards consists of two groups and whilst the all-male group are off performing Much Ado About Nothing, it is the all-female troupe that are coming to Cottesbrooke with the Tempest.

Gates will open at 5.00pm for picnics to be set up and for the gardens to be enjoyed, which will be opened for the evening.  The show begins at 7.00pm until approximately 9.00pm.  For further information and ticket information,visit  www.cottesbrooke.co.uk.
