The 45th Marvellous Chatterley Village Fete
The 45th Marvellous Chatterley Village Fete tells the story of Chloe, a young woman living with her granddad after the death of her mother a few years before. Chloe longs to escape the confines of her village, populated as it is by well-meaning neighbours, but wrestles with the fact that her granddad still needs her support. When a large supermarket chain threatens the future of the village, Chloe decides to put the village’s needs before her own, but her loyalties are further compromised by the arrival of a mysterious outsider who seems to offer her everything she’s ever wanted. Navigating these loyalties is a tough test for Chloe, but by the end of the show, and with the help of her friends, she is able to find her own way to go out and follow her dreams, safe in the knowledge there will always be a place for her in Chatterley, should she choose to return.
