Showtime in Cornwall
Last night our friends at The Lost Gardens of Heligan kindly gave us tickets to watch The Rogue Theatre’s latest offerings – The Lost Garden Summer Ball. Que two very excited little girls who had their fairy and angel dresses laid out ready all week and every evening we have practiced the face painting to perfect our look. One practice I dropped the glitter on the floor, I carried on painting Jessica’s face whilst Bethany ‘pretended’ to do Daddies face. Except when I turned to him I quickly realised she had in fact scooped up all the glitter and had covered him in it. Safe to safe Richard and I now resemble glitter balls!
The girls were not disappointed; the interesting and quirky show began with a magical stroll around the gardens until you enter the ‘World of Fae’ where we were treated to 6 enchanting tales. Of particular note was the very funny take on ‘Selfies’. The girls were mesmerized by both the show and live music. Their highlight had to be dancing on the open air stage at the end with the other fairies. The Rogue Theatre command quite a following down in Cornwall, and rightly so. Their unique and quirky style has something to offer for all ages.
Cornwall offers a huge variety of things to go and watch – there really is something for everyone – here are my top 5…
- The Rogue Theatre – The Lost Garden Summer Ball
- The Miracle Theatre Company – Our favourite theatre company, these guys never disappoint, with shows in Tregahan Garden in St Austell.
- The Minack Theatre – Perhaps the best location for a theatre. It is utterly stunning and offers a haunting backdrop to the amazing productions hosted there.
- The Hall for Cornwall is our County theatre and offers all the big name touring shows. Of note this summer for our younger guests is the Milkshake Tour which is coming in August.
- This summer sees cinema screenings on Carlyon Bay Beach
