Touring company The Pantaloons have two open-air shows next month in Saffron Walden. On Saturday, August 6, they present The Canterbury Tales in Bridge End Gardens. This is young persons’ version with puppetry and poetry, music and magic, talking chickens and burnt bottoms (probably of the humans). It’s been described as fast-paced and funny and pure medieval mayhem for all the family. Tickets are £13.50 for adults, £8 children, family £37.
