The story of John Chapman is a well known folk tale from the fifteenth century. There are various versions but few actual facts are know about him. This version keeps to the original tale but characters and events have been added to create a truly entertaining production.
Written by award winning writer Alan Huckle, the action takes the audience from Swaffham Town to London Bridge and back again relating the adventures of John Chapman, his family and the townsfolk of Swaffham as they struggle to keep their town alive.
There are villains, saints, drama and comedy with many memorable songs suitable for all the family.
