Our House

Our House

The Littleport Players is an amateur theatre company whose superb performances merit a professional London theatreland venue. Luckily for us locals, their cast and crew’s almost limitless talent was on display at Littleport Village Hall in July for their latest production, Our House – The Madness Musical. And the hall itself was magically transformed into a top intimate theatre experience for the audience akin to the Donmar Warehouse in Covent Garden. The set and staging…

It was explained how the spores are kept at…

Littleport’s Successful Parkruns!

Littleport’s Successful Parkruns!

The need for a Parkrun in East Cambridgeshire has been known for a few years now, but several failed attempts in Ely have proven there simply has not been a suitable venue to meet the needs and requirements. Matt Holmes of Littleport had the idea to set up an event in Littleport in September 2017, and made some initial enquiries, and on the suggestion of myself, applied for a grant from the Parish Council to…
