Passion, Poison & Politics – Talk, Tour & Afternoon Tea
Saturday 3rd July, 5:30 pm - 8:00 pm.
Fantastic offer for groups of up to 5 people
Join us in the idyllic setting of our gardens for an intriguing talk on Shakespeare’s relationship to Botany, a tour around our Gardens to discover the plants mentioned followed by an afternoon Tea with a Lute accompaniment.
Michael Arkle, our very brilliant Garden Volunteer and Friend of the 1620s House and Garden will present his well researched and fascinating talk:
Passion, Poison and Politics; will focus on how Shakespeare used plants as imagery in his poems and plays. The ‘Passion’ is conveyed through the strong expression of emotion displayed in his words, the politics is reflected in his profound interest in the colour of roses and political allegiance, and poison picks up the fact that the plot of three plays revolve around the use of lethal or mind-altering plant-based medication.
Afternoon tea will be served with a selection of sandwiches, cakes & a scone. You can choose to upgrade your tea to Prosecco for a small charge on the day.
The barn bar will be open.
Ticket price is £50 per table with a maximum of 5 people to a table.
