Tales Through Time – A Right Royal Gallop

We’re pleased to announce that Up The Road will be part of the national celebrations for the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee!

At Westenhanger Castle, near Hythe, we will be performing our newly penned production Tales Through Time – A Right Royal Gallop.

Aristocratic Lady Rosamund is travelling across Kent with her flustered PA/woman of all jobs Miss Marshall. Unfortunately, their car breaks down en route, leaving them stranded at Westenhanger Castle. One thing leads to another, and soon they’re taking their audience on a rapid ride through history. Once back in 2022, thoughts turn to the Platinum Jubilee and the glorious reign that the celebration is all about.

Westenhanger Castle, Stone Street, near Hythe
(a short distance from Westenhanger Station)

Friday 3rd June 2pm & 6pm
Sunday 5th June 11am
(plus a private show at 3pm for local parish residents)

Jessica Saunders – Miss Marshall


Jessica properly began her acting journey after graduating from the University of Birmingham last year, with First Class Honours in Drama and English Literature. Her recent credits include a digital production of Love and Information and a VR Film In Pursuit of Repetitive Beats, alongside a handful of fun adverts. She is very excited about performing at a real-life castle and can’t wait to see everyone’s smiling faces!

Liz Garland – Lady Rosamund


Liz trained at the Birmingham School of Acting. Since then she has enjoyed a wonderfully varied career, from fart jokes in the West End with David Walliams’ Gangsta Granny, to having tomato soup squirted in her face in the TV show Andy and The Band. She has toured the country in the poignant WW1 play Birdsong and performed in Germany on the family TV show Pan Tau and with the English Theatre of Hamburg.

So far she has not had the joy of working in beautiful Kent and is very excited to be a part of this new production, celebrating the Jubilee with the community.
