LUD'S CHURCH, THE GREEN CHAPEL in Sir Gawain & The Green Knight
The world famous medieval poem, Sir Gawain and The Green Knight has an anonymous author, it was written locally, probably by a monk and features many of Leek & The Staffordshire Moorlands geographic features. The story culminates in Lud’s Church aka The Green Chapel. The story features heavily in Doctor Plots – this year we have street theatre retelling the story, and later in the year a talk by Gawain expert Clive Foden and a guided walk covering the very paths explored in the poem to Lud’s Church
Community Parade July 2nd
July 2nd is a packed day for Doctor Plots. As well as the street theatre at 11am, craft workshops for all ages and story telling we have a big parade at 2pm to escort the victorious Sir Gawain through town to the Market Place for a final retelling of the famous story.
Some of our workshops are making accessories (out of cardboard) for young knights to form part of the parade but we’re encouraging you all to dress up and join in, medieval style. Knights, Knightesses, Princes, Princesses, Kings, Queens, Monks and all. Bring a flag or two, crazy hats, banners, the more the merrier!!
Assemble 1:50pm at Sparrow Park to be part of this crazy bit of fun! (children to be accompanied by a responsible adult)
