The Willow Globe Company is taking a production of William Shakespeare’s pastoral comedy ‘As You Like It’ on tour to the fantastic setting of Gregynog Hall at Tregynon, near Newtown on Saturday, July 2.
The company, which has its base at Llanwrthwl, near Llandrindod Wells, will be welcoming the audience to the Forest of Arden with “love, laughter, music and philosophy under the greenwood tree”.
The outdoor production, from 7pm to 10pm with interval, is the climax of a day of activities at Gregynog Hall, former home of famous art-loving sisters Margaret and Gwendoline Davies. In the event of rain, the performance will move indoors to the Music Room.
As it’s an open-air performance, the audience is advised to bring chairs and blankets, a small number of seats will be available on site. Tickets, costing £12 for adults, £6 for under 16s and £30 for a family, may be purchased online at https://www.shakespearelink.org.uk/ticket-office/asyoulikeit/gregynog .
Visitors are invited to spend the day exploring the magical gardens and woodland at Gregynog Hall and its 750-acre estate before taking part in Willow Globe’s ‘Have-a-go Shakespeare’ workshop in the Gregynog Hall’s historic Music Room from 2-4pm. Participants will be asked to make a £3 donation to the Gregynog Trust.
The workshop will be followed by a buffet in the ornate oak carved Blayney Room between 4.30-6pm. Booking is required for the buffet which costs £10 for adults and £5 for children. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
