Theatre: The Story of Love in the Harbour (CANCELLED)

Thursday 23 July 2020
6.30 pm - 9.15 pm

The health and safety of our visitors, staff and community is paramount. Due to the continuing global public health crisis and following Government advice, we have taken the decision to cancel all of our Summer Season Shows.

We are truly sorry for any inconvenience caused and we will be issuing refunds to anyone who has purchased a ticket. Please keep an eye on our website and social media channels for the latest updates.


Don’t miss this wonderful heart-warming musical theatre production:  “The Story of Love in the Harbour”, based on the play by Eddie Alford, with music and lyrics by Danielle Morgan and John Merrigan.  This production comes to the Weald & Downland Living Museum as part of our Summer Season and will be held in the Museum’s award-winning Downland Gridshell Building.

Gates open 6:30 pm. Performance begins 7.30 pm.


Based on an original play by Eddie Alford, “The Story of Love in the Harbour” is a moving musical dramatization of the romance between George McElroy, a British RAF officer and Grace Guinan, a young Irish girl, who fight with passion to preserve their love at a time of huge change and turmoil.

Set in WW1 on the front-line in France and in rural Ireland, the action is conveyed through stirring scene enactments on stage, compelling narration and vivid images of the period – all designed to inspire and move the audience.

The beautiful all original music and lyrics, performed live by Danielle Morgan and Orchestra, convey powerful emotions that lead us to reflect on the true meaning on heroism, sacrifice and love – timeless themes still relevant today.
