The Legend of King Arthur
Benenden Village Hall
31 January - 3 February 2019
Our Pop-Up Ticket Booth will be open at Benenden's Community Shop between 10 and 12 on the following Sunday mornings:
The Legend of King Arthur takes place in Kent (Camelot and all that Tintagel nonsense is merely shameless cultural appropriation by Cornwall). We see Arthur being brought up by his 2 Aunts (Nelly & Nora Knockers), with his friends Guin and Merlin, facing peril from the evil Major Bragalot. Bragalot is deeply envious of Arthur, particularly when he learns from the village crone that Arthur is destined to be king hereafter. But his evil plans are thwarted by 3 feisty witches, who ensure that Arthur grows up safely.
As an adult Arthur manages to prove his rightful inheritance, but he still has to face up to Bragalot, his nemesis. Will he secure his crown and the lovely Guinevere? Will his Nelly & Nora get the men of their dreams?? Will anyone pay their taxes in full before the Tax Inspector catches up with them???
