‘Waiting for Godot’ coming to the Gardens

June 22, 2013


Miracle Theatre Company have been taking the best outdoor theatre to audiences around the West Country for more than 30 years and this summer they are bringing ‘Waiting for Godot’ to Shaldon Botanical Gardens.

This excellent small company has a reputation for entertaining, intelligent, funny and innovative theatre so Beckett’s timeless masterpiece fits the bill to perfection.

See it under the stars in the spectacular setting of our own ruined castle on Saturday 17th August – bring well stocked hampers, cushions and blankets for a special night of theatre, come rain or shine!

Tickets will be available from the 1st July from the Post Office and Newsagents at £12 each. (NB. This play is not recommended for the under-12s)

Garden commemorated in School mosaics

June 22, 2013


Anyone passing Shaldon School recently will have seen seven stunning new mosaic panels mounted on its walls, and we are delighted that the Gardens have been included in the project.

Professional artist Michelle Greenwood-Brown worked with the children on ‘The Journey of an Artist’ project to produce these mosaic panels depicting various aspects of village life.

Find out more about this project, and their involvement in it, on The Helen Foundation site, here.
