Review: Pride and Prejudice, Chapterhouse Theatre Company

I first went to see an outdoor play last year when I went to see Sense and Sensibility in the grounds of Lanercost Priory and since then have been hoping to see another. As it happened, a visit home for the bank holiday weekend coincided with another Jane Austen performance by the Chapterhouse Theatre Company. This time I was able to see Pride and Prejudice outside the priory and rather than going on my own I was accompanied by James and my family. View Post

A Weekend in Kielder

Sometimes in life you just need to step back from everything. When work is busy, your diary is overflowing with things to do and places to see, and you just can’t quite turn off. It’s at times like this that I find it can be really soothing to spend some time outdoors and just relax. Our trip to Kielder came at exactly the right time, and was the perfect place to recharge my batteries. View Post

Review: Sense and Sensibility, Chapterhouse Theatre Company

I love history, I love Jane Austen, and I love the theatre. So when I heard that a theatre production of Sense and Sensibility was coming to Lanercost Priory for the night, I didn’t really need any persuading to go! It was the first time I’d been to an outdoor production, and also the first time I’d been to see a play by myself, so it was bound to be a memorable experience – but luckily the performance was worth remembering in its own right as well!
