Hamsterley Village Hall

The Village

Hamsterley is pleasantly situated on the brow of a hill seven miles from Bishop Auckland. The village has a rural aspect and is close to the impressive Hamsterley Forest with its 4 mile forest drive, orienteering course, horseriding trails, mountainbiking routes, and forest and riverside walks.

The Hall

The village hall was originally built as a school in 1822 and was converted to a village hall in 1967. It stands on the village green near the pond.

    The Hamsterley Players present this hilarious and spectacular adaptation by Patrick Barlow, from an original concept by Simon Corble and Nobby Dimon,  of Britain’s most spell-binding thriller by John Buchan and the movie of Alfred Hitchcock, licensed by ITV Global Entertainment Limited.  Legendary scenes include the chase on the Flying Scotsman, the escape on the Forth Bridge, the first theatrical bi-plane crash ever staged and the death-defying (or nearly!) finale at the London Palladium!

    Performed by arrangement with Samuel French.
