Spectacular Shows in the Walled Gardens of Cannington (August 2011)


During the August bank holiday week, the Walled Gardens will play host to two wonderful shows: Snow White and Sense and Sensibility. The performances are produced by Chapterhouse Theatre Company, and both will enthral children and adults alike. Spectators can picnic in the Gardens before the shows – to really make an afternoon or evening of the event.

Snow White will be performed on Monday 29 August at 4pm, and during the interval there will be a fairytale parade – so spectators are invited to watch the show in fancy dress!

Sense and Sensibility, on Friday 2 September, promises to be an evening of Regency wonderment, as Elinor and Marianne Dashwood make their first forays into the excitingly decadent world of eighteenth-century society. This brand new adaptation of Jane Austen's lively tale follows the sisters as they fall in love, make mistakes and experience heartbreak for the first time in their quest to find a balance between sense and sensibility.
