A light hearted celebration in Revue of the British countryside in words and music
" .. the seasons . the landscapes .. the characters .. the weather"


A fascinating mixture of classic and contemporary writing with the emphasis on lyricism and laughter.
Hear some of the nation's finest language and music brought to life by some of the most famous voices in the land.
Voices from Ambridge offers a unique programme of live, light-hearted entertainment from the cast of The Archers.
The show is performed by regular characters from the world's longest running radio drama serial.

A company of four (or more) actors brings you the best from centuries of rustic wit and wisdom - as well as specially written tales, tunes and titbits from the most famous fictional village in the world!
Come Rain, Come Shine is the perfect evening's entertainment for fans of The Archers or anyone interested in the riches of our rural heritage.

Come Rain, Come Shine provides a truly flexible event. Apart from being played as a full-length evening in a conventional theatre it can also be played, for example, as a pre or post dinner entertainment lasting 60 minutes. In whatever format there is a chance for the audience to meet and talk to the cast afterwards, and find out (some!) of the secrets of Ambridge life from the other side of the microphone.

Come Rain, Come Shine could be the perfect answer for your theatre programme, conference, Festival or corporate events.
We are happy to discuss the presentation of themed Archers weekends to include this show.
