MURDER MOST FOUL
An Outdoor Tudor Play
performed in Kilmington Churchyard
on 18/19th September 2021
Kilmington Churchyard was witness in 1556 and 1557 to scenes of great violence that reverberate in the village today. Playwright David Shirreff has brought vividly to life the vicious feud between Charles Lord Stourton, Eighth Baron, and the Hartgills - father and son - who lived at Kilmington Manor.
It ended in a double murder, with the bodies buried in the dungeons of Stourton Castle, which no longer exists.
A window in Kilmington Church is dedicated to the victims, William and John Hartgill.
Actors, musicians, tumblers, revellers, vintners and vittlers from three counties agreed to take part in the festivities.
Proceeds, after costs, will go to the Church Tower Fund.
