For the 4th year running SAGE Greenfingers hosted a performance by Mikron travelling theatre company, based this year on the history of the Women’s Institute (WI) from before the suffragette movement to the present day. The event took place at the Grimesthorpe allotments on the wonderfully sunny evening of 13th May.

The laugh-out-loud play performed by 4 multi-talented actors attracted an audience of over 130 adults and children. High points included the slow handclap given to Tony Blair by the WI at Wembley stadium in 2000 and a very camp song and dance romp through the WI history from farmers’ kitchens in rural Canada through to its current nationwide network of groups.

SAGE Greenfingers collaborated with Grimesthorpe Allotment Association to provide a wonderful spread of refreshments consisting of hot dogs, cakes, teas and soft drinks. SAGE volunteers and staff did a sterling job behind scenes and thoroughly enjoyed the evening.
