On Christmas Eve, Ebenezer Scrooge, a mean-spirited and miserly old man, is visited by the ghost of his business partner Jacob Marley. Shown Christmas’ Past, Present and Future he is offered the chance of redemption…but will he take it?

THIS IS MY THEATRE is a Sussex based theatre company which was formed in 2016 from talented young actors and musicians. With great success THIS IS MY THEATRE tours all over the country and performs in historical places like medieval churches and National Trust venues. In 2019 their tours with Macbeth and Romeo & Juiet received a lot of very positive reviews.

Previous productions include The Tempest at Brighton Fringe Festival (2017), Macbeth (Touring, 2017), The Importance of Being Earnest- (Touring, 2018), Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland -(Touring, 2018).

Their autumn 2020  tour of Macbeth was hugely successful  and played to sold out audiences.

In June 2019 THIS IS MY THEATRE brought Shakespeare’s Romeo & Juliet to St Nicholas Church (Swafield) and received a very enthusiastic reception.  

What people said about the performance at St Nicholas in Swafield in 2019:

“Many congratulations on that wonderful evening last night.  By far the best theatre experience I have ever had, completely encompassing and at one with the medieval church. We both felt overcome by it. Thank you!”

“Thanks to you for another enjoyable evening!  I had to keep dodging the daggers from my prime position in the pews! And the music really added to the experience. The actors were all well trained. (I think Romeo actually really loved Juliet in real life!) …  It was as close as I will ever get to a stage play again unless you all put on another one !! Please do!“

The audience will be placed with strict social distancing, each different household 2 meters apart. Face masks are mandatory. The number of tickets is very limited, pre-booking only.




The performance took place inside St. Botolph’s Church in Trunch. The audience were seated with the required government social distancing. Masks had to be worn all the time.

The number of places was limited. Pre-booking only. Tickets – £15.

Tickets were available from Trunch Corner Stores, phone 01263 722072.

SATURDAY 5th September 4pm OUTDOORS at St.Botolph’s Church, Trunch


Get in a fight. Cross-dress. Throw on some yellow stockings. Love can make you do the funniest things…! The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons Theatre Company present their own brand of Shakespearean mayhem. Family-friendly fun with social distancing, live music and audience participation!
The Pantaloons are a vibrant and anarchic theatre company who bring a vital sense of “play” back to classical performance. The Pantaloons aim to recapture an aspect of Shakespeare’s comedies which the modern naturalistic theatre has lost: the riotous energy of the clown. 
“Witty, energetic and accessible” – The Guardian  

The performance took place in front of the North elevation of St. Botolph’s Church in Trunch. The audience was seated on chairs on the Church lawn, which were divided into boxes 3 x 3 meters, with social distancing of 2 meters.

Face Masks were worn while moving to all seats. 

The number of places – limited. Pre-booking only. Tickets – £15. SOLD OUT

French Salon Music
at Swafield Hall Gardens

Alex Rider – Harp
Rebecca Kaznowski – Soprano 

SATURDAY 22nd August 2020, 4 pm

This outdoor concert at Swafield Hall Gardens aims to recreate the intimate tone and ambience of French Salon music and will include beautiful and sublime melodies by Debussy, Fauré, Caplet and Schumann, interwoven with works for a solo harp. Alex Rider is a harpist with a passion for the history and lore of the instrument, and, if the weather permits,  will be performing on an original French Erard harp dating from 1902.

The concert will take place in front of the French-style Parterre garden of C16th Swafield Hall’s Georgian South elevation, influenced by French country house architecture.

Rebecca Kaznowski (soprano) and Alex Rider (harp) are part of the Eynsford Ensemble. The ensemble was formed in 2017 by Tadzik Kaznowski and his father Zbys Kaznowski. It is comprised of 24 musicians, all with the same love for making music with friends. The main objective of the ensemble is to use music to engage, to raise funds for various good causes and raise awareness of upcoming composers.

All concert proceeds will be donated to Trunch and Swafield Church restoration projects.
Guests will be seated outdoors on the Main Lawn of Swafield Hall with social distancing of 2 metres.
The number of places is limited. Pre-booking only. Tickets – £15. 

Swafield Hall’s Gardens will be open for the concert audience.  

 Following the government guidelines we have decided to postpone indoor TRUNCH CONCERTS until May 2021
