BRIMMING with verve and energy, Chaucer’s well-loved stories are brought beautifully and vividly alive by the students from Bristol Old Vic Theatre School.

The Canterbury Tales will be performed at The Princess Theatre in Burnham-on-sea. A colourful cast of characters set off for Canterbury, competing to tell their tales of love, lust, adventure and chivalry.

All of medieval life will be there, with the wide range of social strata rubbing shoulders as the Miller, the Steward and the Wife of Bath (among others) all have their tales to tell.

The Canterbury Tales comes to The Princess Theatre on June 11 at 7:30pm. Tickets cost £12. To buy tickets call 01278 784464 or visit
