August 5, 2020 @ 8:00 am - August 7, 2020 @ 5:00 pm

Street Theatre performed by the Sarah Siddons Theatre Company against the backdrop of Old Southampton.

We step back into history with this unique street theatre company’s production which brings to life 17th century Southampton. Meet Essay Whittiffe builder of the Speedwell, the colourful fishwives of St Michael’s Square, bid farewell to John Alden as he leaves his Southampton home.

Set against the original historic backdrops of where these real life incidents took place feel free to dress up in period costume if you want to really immerse yourself in 1620s Southampton. Get ready to enjoy the sites, sounds and smells of history.

The show runs for 90 minutes, and is performed outside and will take place whatever the weather. It is a perambulation with scenes performed in the places where the action originally happened.
