A Play at the Pub! – Blithe Spirit

Thursday 9th August 2018 at 4pm until 7pm

Cost: Ticket Price £25

For a third year running The Black Horse is excited to announce another Play at the Pub; Noel Cowards “Blithe Spirit” performed by the Changeling Theatre.

It’s discouraging to think how many people are shocked by honesty and how few by deceit.

Celebrated novelist Charles Condomine has invited a local medium and eccentric, Madame Arcati, to hold a séance at his house, as research for his new book. Arcati calls up the ghost of Charles’ first wife – the alluring Elvira – who delights in taunting her husband and mocking his marriage to his new wife Ruth.

Blithe Spirit is one of Coward’s most enduring comedies and has been a smash hit comedy of the London and Broadway stages.

Performed by the professional actors of the Changeling Theatre company.  For further information on the Changeling Theatre go to http://changeling-theatre.com/


The seating arrangement is casual so please bring your own chair or rug.  Please note that due to the limited space in our garden, no gazebos, tables etc are permitted.  You will be allocated your space by a person from the production company on the day.


Hopefully we will have good weather but we British are made of sterner stuff so bring your waterproofs just in case!  There will be umbrellas to hire on the day but you may bring your own.  We also recommend you bring a blanket or something warm to wrap up in as the temperature can drop as the afternoon turns to evening.

Food & Drink

Upon arrival, your ticket entitles you to a complimentary glass of Prosecco or fresh orange juice as required.

No outside food or drink is permitted.  All food and drink consumed on the premises must be purchased from The Black Horse at Ireland.  We have a fully licensed bar with a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages as well as great cask ales and an extensive wine list.
