Welcome to ‘The Canterbury’, an Olde English Inn. Infamous around these parts for villainy and sin. 


The floor is fresh with sawdust for soaking up the spit. And the air is full of stories, told with wisdom, guile and wit. Some of them romantic, some are bawdy, others scary and there are tales about the devil that should make you oh so wary. Some are beautifully poetic and some a little coarser. A medieval medley from the pen of Geoffrey Chaucer!

All of life is here in these few bawdy, funny, serious and sometimes shocking, short stories. Experience a journey down the foul and fetid footpaths of fourteenth-century England, told with the usual irreverence, wit and silliness! 

The show is suitable for adults and accompanied 12+. Contains mild swearing and sexual innuendo / references.
