For one night only Chesterfield G&S bring their touring production of this much loved, but now rarely performed, operetta of the early 20th century.

Set in the period after the defeat of the Spanish Armada and during May Day celebrations, Merrie England tells a tale of the rivalry of Sir Walter Raleigh & the Earl of Essex for the affections and attentions of Queen Elizabeth I.

With stirring songs and music – including the well known “Yeomen of England”, “Oh Peaceful England” and “Dan Cupid hath a Garden” – this is an entertainment not to be missed.
