Enjoy a summer evening seeing ‘Much Ado about Nothing’ in support of local Hospice
St Peter & St James Hospice is delighted to be supported by Players in the Park as they present a ‘Bard in the Barn’ production of Shakespeare’s ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ in aid of the Hospice.
From Wednesday 8 – Friday 17 June, ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ will be performed, in Lindfield, where all are invited to picnic before the performance and enjoy the picturesque surroundings.
Cathryn Parker, from Players in the Park, said, “We’re delighted to be putting on this play in support of St Peter & St James Hospice. Over the last three productions we have raised over £20,000 – a fantastic sum, thanks to the support of our players and production team, the hospice local support groups and fundraising team, our generous sponsors and of course our lovely audiences who come to see the play!”
“Players in the Park are grateful to Jeremy & Jacky Burdett and family at Cockhaise Farm, Lindfield, for once again permitting us to use their grain store as a pop-up theatre for two weeks.”
Giles Witcomb, Head of Fundraising at St Peter & St James Hospice, said, “All at the hospice are looking forward to the performances in June. In previous years, the productions have been extremely well-attended by our supporters and I hope that as many people as possible get to enjoy the talent, picturesque surroundings and delicious refreshments on offer. Such hard work goes into all the rehearsals and we’re extremely grateful to everyone involved for all their hard work and commitment.”

"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
