Midsummer Night’s Dream – the Crescent Theatre

In Athens preparations are being made for the marriage of the Duke, Theseus, and Hippolyta, Queen of the Amazons. Meanwhile, in a nearby enchanted forest, the feud between the Fairy King and Queen reaches a new crisis. Into their realm are drawn four young Athenian lovers and a group of amateur actors – and comic mayhem ensues.

Hugely funny and heart-warming, modern dress production of one of Shakespeare’s best loved and most enduring comedies.
What better place to see this magical Shakespeare place but in the Gardens…

“So we grew together,
Like to a double cherry, seeming parted,
But yet an union in partition,
Two lovely berries moulded on one stem.”

Some seating available. Feel free to bring your own, and a picnic. This is an outdoor production Please dress for the weather. Light refreshments available.
Tickets £10

Tickets from the Crescent theatre site  HERE , or by calling at the Gardens and on the gate.

This is one of 3 Shakespeare’s in the Gardens this Summer … buy a tickets for all 3 at £10 each (present your purchased tickets at the kiosk to get the difference refunded)

Blossom picnics- Birmingham’s own Hanami

Spend the day under the blossom trees in the heritage orchards of the Historic Gardens.
With apple and pear blossoms instead of the traditional Japanese plum, this version of Hanami still echoes the tradition of enjoying the beauty of the flowers this Spring.
A picnic in the Gardens is always enjoyable, however, the orchards in full bloom also provide the perfect setting for your relaxing day out.

Traditional Japanese food by Pika Pika will be available on the day, with a selection of delicious sushi and curry available.

Bring your own food and drink too. Cafe open for light refreshments
Music and other activities likely! Take part in learning how to create beautiful origami creations.
Normal entrance fees.

Lantern making FREE days

Be part of the big community art installation in the Gardens this year.

Light up Christmas with stars and planets that you have made!

Volunteers from Castle Bromwich Hall Gardens are working with partners across the community, including ‘Arts in the Yard’ in Stechford, Yardley and Hobmoor as well as local schools and families to make a Super Star Studded Lantern Lit Garden event this Christmas.

Opportunities to get involved:

Free Lantern Making days
Friday 16th November, Saturday 17th November
Friday 23rd November and Saturday 24th November

Come along, learn how to make the stars for a couple of hours or all day. Training and guidance given, work on your own or with others, on individual or ‘group’ stars. Entry for makers is free on these days.
Your work will be part of the display in the Gardens until the end of December.

Making the stars is quite easy. It takes a little bit of dexterity. Young children may need a little help from their grown ups. But all age groups are welcome.
A reward for your work will be a discounted entry or free cafe voucher to be used on the Xmas event days.

 

Group or School Stars

There is a limited opportunity in November for school classes or scout/guide troops to work with artist Sophie Handy to make a special Star display.

Your class can work with Sophie for a day, at school or in the Gardens, to make a whole display for the Gardens – Your groups name will appear on that star in the Gardens.

Contact the Gardens for available dates and costs.
