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."
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"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."
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
