>Step back in time this weekend. Writers and performers from The Revellers of Great Gransden and Little Gransden will bring you local eight stories.

This is the group’s second performance of Time Travellers after it was a hit with the audience two years ago.

Catch it tomorrow (Saturday, July 12) and on Sunday at 2pm and 5.30pm.

Performances will start at The Reading Room in Fox Street, Great Gransden and then the narrator will guide you on a leisurely walk through the villages, stopping on the way to hear tales of local heroes, eccentrics and visionaries.

For those who prefer a more restful means of travel, a vintage bus will also be on hand to provide transport.

The performances finish at The Crown and Cushion.

Time Traveller tickets are available from the box office or by phoning 01767 679164 and leaving your name, phone number and ticket requirements.

Tickets cost £8 for adults and £4 for children aged five to 16 and senior citizens aged 60 plus.
