Clun Site Index

5-day weather



Although A E Housman (1859-1936)Country View click to enlarge in his poem "A Shropshire Lad", called Clun "the quietest place under the sun"  we are a lively and active rural community.  You will discover this as you wander through the site.  Our aim is to provide information, current and historical, for all residents in Clun and the surrounding areas, new or would-be visitors, regular returners, and Clun people living away from home.

The site is, like a book, divided into chapters.  History will tell you all about Clun past, News reports current happenings, Events provides a diary of future events with in some cases links to fuller information.  The extensive Directory provides information on local services, schools, churches, shops, traders, accommodation, sports and leisure organisations, how to get here and places to visit plus much, much more.

  Pentabus Theatre Company presents "Each Slow Dusk" at Clun Memorial Hall   click here for details

Rory Mullarkeyís The Wolf From The Door has just been seen at the Royal Court and in the past year he has collected so many awards that his mantelpiece must be groaning. So itís good to see him writing a brand new play for this tour of village halls by the excellent touring company Pentabus. Itís another first world war story, this time looking at the experiences of three young men serving on the western front, and linking their story with that of a young woman living today in a rural community who has just returned from a tour of battlefields. Elizabeth Freeman directs a story that is billed as being local and national, personal and epic.  From Lyn Gardner of The Guardian''s notes on What's On This Week
