Live open-air theatre returns to Bedgebury National Pinetum this summer and tickets are already selling like hot cakes. On Wednesday 29th August, Illyria will be presenting an ingenious staging of much-loved children's classic The Twits by Roald Dahl (adapted by David Wood) in Bedgebury's picturesque Walled Garden.
"This is our fourth year of open air theatre." Says Cath Weeks, Bedgebury's Learning & Interpretation Manager. "The Twits is a show that all ages can enjoy and promises to be a highlight of the summer holidays. Everyone can bring rugs or fold-up chairs and settle down to watch a fun show in a peaceful and atmospheric setting."
The show starts at 2.30pm and runs for one and a half hours, with a 20 minute interval. Talking of hot cakes, refreshments will be available and picnickers are welcome. There is easy parking close by.
Tickets priced at £9 for children and £12 for adults are on sale from April via the Forestry Commission Box Office on 03000 680400.
