A unique theatre company will be – quite literally – sailing into Leyland next month.

Leyland Historical Society will host he four-strong Mikron Theatre Company at the Civic Centre on West Paddock.

Mikron is the only theatre company in the world to travel from job to job by narrow boat.

This enables members to reach places often neglected by other performers.

They will present Don’t Shoot the Messenger, a celebration of the postal service.

The plays focuses on an unsuspecting gunman who gets more than he bargains for when he holds up a sleepy village post office and the postmistress fights back.

Tickets for the October 7 show cost £7 and are available from 01772 641604.
