An everyday story of cruise folk

//An everyday story of cruise folk

Some of the cast of The Archers will be escaping from Ambridge next year, and cruising to the Mediterranean with Fred Olsen.
They will be reviving a tradition of Archers-themed cruises, and as well as mingling with other passengers at the Captain’s cocktail party they will take part in a special performance of the long-running radio show – complete with agricultural sound-effects.
Names of the cast members taking part have not yet been confirmed, but the characters Eddie Grundy, Kathy Perks, Linda Snell and Mike Tucker have sailed on previous cruises.
The first Archers cruise of 2011 will be a 10-night Easter voyage on Balmoral, sailing from Southampton on April 23 and visiting La Coruna, Casablanca, Gibraltar and Portimao. Fares from £1,014.
The actors will be on board Black Watch for a 13-night cruise to Cadiz, Almeria, Ibiza, Mahon, Palma, and Lisbon, leaving Dover on September 12. Fares from £1,392.
I wonder who’ll be doing the milking while they’re away.
