MED Theatre’s community play ‘Whitehorse Hill’ invites you to take a journey through time in the enchanting Bellever Forest and delve deep into the stories of Dartmoor’s past.

Inspired by the archaeological remains of a Bronze Age burial found near Postbridge known as the Whitehorse Hill cist, audiences will be led as part of a procession through seven different periods of Dartmoor’s history. The story explores themes of heritage and knowledge, female strength, and how these ideas pass and change through time. MED Theatre first developed and performed this play in 2015 as part of Dartmoor’s Moor than meets the eye Landscape Partnership Scheme, part-funded by Heritage Lottery Fund.

One audience member commented ‘I thought I knew an awful lot about the history of Dartmoor, but you’ve wetted my appetite for different times’. Once again, Whitehorse Hill is to be performed at dusk in Bellever Forest, this time on the 23rd and 24th of September 2017. Performances will start at 6pm from Bellever Forest car park, PL20 6TU. Children under 10 must be accompanied by an adult.

Entry is free but places must be booked in advance by contacting MED Theatre, since places are limited.
