Much Ado About Nothing at Hatherop Castle

Events, Features by Tony No Comments »

16th July – 21st July Open Air production by The Cotswold Arcadians

The Cotswold Arcadians is a theatre group based in south-east Gloucestershire who stage large scale, open-air Shakesperian productions.

They have been producing these productions since 1991 and this year they have chosen one of Shakespeare’s most popular love stories “Much Ado About Nothing.”

The light-hearted plot hinges on lovers united and divided, a touch of villainy, the seemingly simple and ignorant uncovering of dark deeds, and ultimately,reconciliation all round.

Just as a love story should be.

This 2007 production is once again set in the beautiful grounds of Hatherop Castle and features the rich and sumptuous costumery of the Tudor period.

Hatherop Castle is two miles north of Fairford and eight miles east of Cirencester. The estates were first recorded in the Domesday Book. It is now a preparatory school.

The Gardens open for picnics from 6pm. Performances start at 8pm. and seating is in a covered, tiered grandstand.

The 19th Cotswold Show, Cirencester Park

Events, Features by Adam No Comments »

Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th July will see the 19th Cotswold Show take place at Cirencester Park.

This year’s show will feature displays from groups such as the Royal Corps of Signals White Helmets Motorcycle Display Team and the Cheshire Dog Display Team. Other entertainment will include falconry, horse whispering and celebrity otters.

The food village will include produce from all over the UK with stalls, cookery demonstrations and a farmer’s market.

The event will also include a Rural Craft Village with hands on demonstrations of dry-stone walling, bee-keeping, hurdle making, broom making, rope making and saddle making. Children will be able to make their own beeswax candles or corn dolly to take home.

Cirencester Park is approximately one mile outside Cirencester town centre, past Cirencester College & Deer Park School, before the Agricultural College on the A419 Stroud Road.

Tickets at the gate cost £7 for adults and £2 for Children 3-14.

Update 13th July

Tim Relf’s rural life blog has an interesting article about an event at the Cotswold Show where visitors turned valuers to guess guessing the value of a country cottage, some farm machinery and an antique item.
