Larkin family reunite for Bishopstoke Players' next show.

The unforgettable Larkin family, made famous in the ITV television series 'The Darling Buds of May', is being reunited by Bishopstoke Players.

The colourful characters will be entertaining audiences at Bishopstoke Memorial Hall from 18th to 20th May.

'The Darling Buds of May' became one of the most popular comedy drama programmes on UK television when it was first aired in 1991.

Pop Larkin, who makes a fortune from scrap-iron deals but has never paid income tax, lives in rural idyllic bliss with generous-hearted Ma and their six children. When a young, earnest tax official, Mr Charlton, turns up one hot May afternoon in 1957 to investigate, he is bewitched immediately by eldest daughter Mariette and it isn't long before he succumbs to the boisterous Larkin family charm and largesse.

Performances will be in Bishopstoke Memorial Hall from 18th to 20th May at 7.30pm.  Tickets are £8 (£6 under 16) and are available online at, or email the box office at or phone (07871) 006551.

Bishopstoke Players is proud to have donated proceeds from its shows to the charity, Action for Children, since the Players were formed in 1947.

Tickets will be available from 1st April.
