Open air theatre at Bridgemere Gardens

Last night I took my Mum to see Illyria perform Twelfth Night open air in Bridgemere Gardens - it was magical! So lovely to have Shakespeare performed with such a beautiful backdrop with the wind rustling the trees and a lovely sunset and equally lovely moonrise. It was a bit cool after sunset so we were glad we'd taken fleece blankets but the weather actually stayed very nice for us!

Oh how lovely, jp. We are going to see A Midsummer Night's Dream at our local NT house on Saturday. We have been before to the open air theatre there, and know that it gets very chilly.

We were lucky that the weather improved yesterday for our trip to see AMND! Like you, jp, there was a pretty sunset. At one point they had to pause on stage as flocks of geese flew overhead honking loudly on their way back to the wetlands for the night. Oberon glanced upwards and waved to them all.

Ohh that sounds absolutely lovely Kits! I did sort of wish Illryia were doing AMND but Twelfth Night was really well done and we laughed all the way through. Glad the weather was kind to you too!
