Welford Park
RG20 8HU

We are guests of local family The Peakes, to celebrate the end of World War I. With a circus! But wait a minute: a circus without any talent, animals or exotic wonders? Enter the anarchic deserter Joe and friends, with their bitter-sweet Masquerade. A stunning outdoor performance with songs specially composed, dancing, lovely costumes, a huge cast of local families and fully professional production values, a Boxford Masque is always a sight worth seeing. Bring a picnic and a bottle of wine. Enjoy the ravishing gardens, the sun setting during Act 2, the flare path lighting your way home…
