Hi All,

On behalf of The Castle Players in Barnard Castle, I would like to thank those who took part in their Yearly Beer Naming for their Summer Production of Shakespeare in the Grounds of The Bowes Museum. 

They had over 50 entrees & The Name chosen is Agincourt Ale, a 4.0% golden hoppy beer. 3 entrees chose this :- Jo Bird, Chris Johnson also Jim & Jess Dale. They were invited to the launch of the beer at The Old Well. Jo came & added the hops to the brew.

The Beer was launched on Sunday July 3rd at 12:00 at The Old Well, Barnard Castle & will be on there all this  week.

If you can’t get there it will also be coming on in the following pubs :-

The Stanwick, Aldbrough St John
The Teesdale Hotel, Middleton in Teesdale
The High Force Hotel, Forest in Teesdale
The Glaxo Sport & Social Club, Barnard Castle
The Four Alls, Ovington

The Castle Players V.I.P. Tent at The Bowes Museum at 6pm this Tuesday’s performance of the play

 The Castle Players, a community theatre company based in Barnard Castle, have been producing major outdoor theatre productions for over 21 years. The inspiration for starting The Castle Players came during a game of Charades, which took place during a blackout in The Old Well Inn.

This year The Castle Players present Shakespeare’s epic retelling of Henry’s victorious reign and famous victory at Agincourt, directed by Laurence Sach, who recently directed Pride and Prejudice for The Castle Players winter touring production.

The Castle Players are delighted to be able to continue to celebrate their summer production with a special Real Ale produced by local award winning micro-brewery Mithril Ales at Aldbrough St John. Pete Fenwick from Mithril Ales said “I first brewed a special beer for The Castle Players in 2012 which was called ‘The Castle Players Ale, beer As You Like It.’ I like to support the arts locally and their excellent productions bring Shakespeare alive in the grounds of The Bowes Museum.”
