The Lambley Jack Folk Play

Through the involvement of David Longford as Chair of Lambley Arts Festival, Catfoot has been heavily involved in producing the Lambley Jack community plays, as part of Lambley’s folk revival of Cowslip Sunday.

Cowslip Sunday 2010 saw LAMBLEY JACK’S COWSLIP TALES, a potted potty history of Lambley village and its association with cowslips, whilst 2011 saw LAMBLEY JACK AND THE GIANT OF PLOUGHMAN WOOD, a springtime Pantomime featuring fairies, giants, Flamstead the cow and loads of audience participation.

In 2012 the Panto/rough-hewn style continued with LAMBLEY JACK AND THE GOLDEN STOCKINGS, which combined Lambley’s history of the stocking trade with the English folk tale of Tom Tit Tot.

All shows took place on Farmer Dickie’s open-air stage overlooking the Lambley Dumbles and were written and directed by David Longford.
