Canterbury Tales at the OBOD Summer Camp 2008

Here is a selection of photos from the production we put on of three of Chaucer’s Canterbury Tales at the OBOD Summer Camp in the Vale of the White Horse at Lughnasadh. Click on the images to enlarge them. Click on the enlarged image and it gets even bigger. Pictures include the camp orchestra, the Producer and Director taking a bow, the Old King being finished off by the New King, and the Miller’s Tale about to begin with Chaucer in the foreground.


  1. Thanks for the photos – one day I will get to do a whole camp – I have never managed it yet – so much to fit in with work and family life too. Camps are wonderful these days – I heard what you said about their death and rebirth – it was very resonant – in 2007 I reconnected after what felt like an unsafe experience in 2004. The current team are doing a really great job!
    There’s also some stuff about camps on my blog – zip over and have a look!

  2. What is your blog URL Natalie?!

  3. – I assumed that the user name contained a link!

  4. I second Natalie’s comments about camp – though I always find it hard to come back to the “real” world. Indeed I should be working at this minute. Play was full of zest. Those assertive OBOD women will live in my memory for many a day.

  5. Paganism Wicca way is best…

    I found your entry interesting thus I’ve added a Trackback to it on my weblog :)…
