We will be welcomed to David Austin Roses and following a quick rest stop we will view the beautiful patio garden and the David Austin display of container-grown roses.

 

We have a guided tour around the 2 acre gardens, with over 700 different varieties of roses to feast your eyes and nose on. The gardens are divided up into four distinct areas each designed to inspire rose lovers and gardeners alike. David Austin was very proud in 2015 to receive the Award of Garden Excellence from the World Federation of Rose Societies. They are only the third garden in England to be honoured with this award.

 

After our tour and lunch we will have time to walk around the plant centre home of the largest collection of potted roses in the country. You can also visit the shop which holds a range of garden related items including tools, books, gifts, china and textiles.

 

Please be aware the garden routes are over grassed areas so they may be uneven. Tours will continue during wet weather so, we advise wearing suitable clothing for your day.

Based on the authorised biography of Dusty Springfield by Vicki Wickham, Dusty features a fiercely funny and emotionally charged script from BAFTA and Olivier nominated writer Jonathan Harvey and what promises to be a career-defining performance from Katherine Kingsley.

 

DUSTY celebrates the extraordinary and vivacious woman whose timeless voice immortalised her as “one of Britain’s most successful female singers” (Daily Telegraph). Dusty Springfield’s global hits include:  I Only Want to Be with You, You Don’t Have to Say You Love Me and Son of a Preacher Man. Her 1969 masterpiece Dusty in Memphis is considered one of the greatest albums of all time.

August

An Ideal Husband
Oscar Wilde

Saturday 4 August 2018

Theatre Royal Bath

 

Set in London in 1895, this satirical drama about political corruption, blackmail, scandal-loving journalists and the pitfalls of holding public figures to higher standards than the rest of us, displays Wilde’s most sparkling wit and sharp humour in a feast for both the ear and the eye.

 

Members £53 | Guests £56

Optional two-course lunch £20

 

An Ideal Husband revolves around the lives of two men, successful political figure Sir Robert Chiltern and his charming, irresponsible friend Lord Arthur Goring. Sir Robert’s life is picture perfect thanks to both his loving and brilliant wife Gertrude and witty sister Mabel. Goring's life is one of lounging, flirting with Mabel, and avoiding his father's instance that he should marry.

 

The world of these two men is turned upside down by the arrival of an old acquaintance Mrs. Laura Cheveley, who has come with blackmail in mind. Sir Robert turns to his friend for assistance who knows the lady of old, and, for him, takes the whole thing very seriously.

Wales Millennium Centre, Cardiff

Following its smash hit runs in London's West End, Bill Kenwright's production of Andrew Lloyd Webber and Tim Rice's Evita is set to thrill audiences once again across the UK. Telling the story of Eva Peron, wife of former Argentine dictator Juan Peron, Evita follows Eva's journey from humble beginnings through to extraordinary wealth, power and iconic status which ultimately lead her to be heralded as the 'spiritual leader of the nation' by the Argentine people.

 

With more than 20 major awards to its credit and featuring some of the most iconic songs in musical theatre, including Don't Cry For Me Argentina, On This Night of a Thousand Stars, You Must Love Me, and Another Suitcase in Another Hall, this smash hit show truly promises to be the theatrical event of the year!
