The best way to see Castle Combe is on foot. A free waking tour of the village can be downloaded HERE. The tour takes about 2.5 hours and covers most of the river valley and village streets.
War Horse is still a hit on the stage both in New York and London, where puppets help tell the story of young Albert and his beloved horse Joey. In NYC, the play is performed 8 times a week at Lincoln Center Theater's Vivian Beaumont, 150 West 65th Street. Ticket prices start at $112 and can be purchased online at http://theater-nyc.com. In London, the show is currently showing at the National Theatre where tickets start at £25, but are sold out through February. To book tickets for the London show, visit ticketing.nationaltheatre.org.uk.
And, with most kids home from school this week local libraries across the country have special events planned, including readings and discussions of the novel War Horse, written by Michael Morpurgo. One such event is taking place on Thursday at the Fanwood, NJ Memorial Library and will include pizza for lunch and a lesson in making shadow puppets. To find a library near you, visit USA.gov.
