Somerset Coalfield Life at Radstock Museum in partnership with Black Hound Productions presents:

“At The Going Down of the Sun”; a play written especially for performance at the Museum.

Patrick Withey, of Black Hound Productions, has written a play about our local heroes returning from WW1. It will be performed by cast members of Black Hound.

There will be three evening performances, starting at 7.30pm, on Thursday 8th, Friday 9th and Saturday 10th November with two matinee performances starting at 2.30pm on Saturday 10th and at 4.00pm on Sunday 11th November.

The Museum doors will open one hour before each performance for browsing the Museum’s downstairs area where you can see the Victorian Street, an exhibition about the show and some WW1 artefacts. There will be a bar for the purchase of drinks.

The performance, which will last for 1 – 1.5 hours, will be ‘in the round’ in the Museum’s upstairs gallery.

TICKETS, which are a limited number for each performance, are £10 each and are now available on-line at the Eventbrite website: (there is a  small booking charge if you buy on-line)

The tickets will also be available on the door before each performance, subject to availability.

Please note: the whole Museum space will be dedicated to the play and therefore  CLOSED TO VISITORS  from 5pm on Saturday 3rd November through to Sunday 11th November. Back open normally on Tuesday November 13th.
