Top 5 things to go and watch

Last night our friends at The Lost Gardens of Heligan kindly gave us tickets to see The Rogue Theatre’s latest offering – The Lost Garden Summer Ball.  Cue two very excited little girls who had their fairy and angel dresses laid out ready all week, and every evening we have practised the face painting to perfect our look…

The Full Story:

One practice I dropped the glitter on the floor, I carried on painting Jessica’s face whilst Bethany ‘pretended’ to do Daddy’s face.  Except when I turned to him I quickly realised she had in fact scooped up all the glitter and had covered him in it.  Safe to safe Richard and I now resemble glitter balls!

The girls were not disappointed; the interesting and quirky show began with a magical stroll around the gardens until you enter the ‘World of Fae’ where we were treated to 6 enchanting tales.  Of particular note was the very funny take on ‘Selfies’.  The girls were mesmerized by both the show and live music.  Their highlight had to be dancing on the open-air stage at the end with the other fairies.  The Rogue Theatre commands quite a following down in Cornwall, and rightly so.  Their unique and quirky style has something to offer for all ages.

Cornwall offers a huge variety of things to go and watch – there really is something for everyone – here are my top 5…

  1. The Rogue Theatre – The Lost Garden Summer Ball
  2. The Miracle Theatre Company – Our favourite theatre company, these guys never disappoint, with shows in Tregahan Garden in St Austell.
  3. The Minack Theatre – Perhaps the best location for a theatre.  It is utterly stunning and offers a haunting backdrop to the amazing productions hosted there.
  4. The Hall for Cornwall is our County theatre and offers all the big-name touring shows.  Of note this summer for our younger guests is the Milkshake Tour which is coming in August.
  5. This summer sees cinema screenings on Carlyon Bay Beach

Here at Little Winnick it has been another busy week.  We have been pretty much full all week which is fantastic.  I am about to put up our tent out the back of reception so I can have a little kitchen to cook our tea in as my little gang of girls are somewhat reluctant to come home with Mummy now they have so many new and lovely guests to play with it.  It is so nice, but there is only so much pasta I can feed them before I start to feel like a bad Mother!  I am very much counting down to the end of school now so we can have some care free days and enjoy some time together.

Next week also sees the first of our very popular Camp Craft sessions.  Take a look at the link about the sessions – please do book if you would like to come as we are getting booked up…I am so excited about this again I do love it!
