Well, even though my garden doesn’t know it, and my summer wardrobe has barely seen the light of day, it is the middle of July! Yet, despite the total washout so far this summer, we are a pragmatic bunch of people here in Haverhill and there are a whole host of outdoor events and activities taking place in the next couple of weeks.
So get your wellies on, grab that brolly, stick the sun tan lotion in your bag just in case, and come and join us, come rain or shine!
This weekend, Friday 20th, Saturday 21st and Sunday 22nd July 2012, Kentwell Hall in Long Melford is holding an Open Air Picnic Theatre, with a performance of Shakespeare’s The Tempest and The Taming of the Shrew, courtesy of the GB Theatre Company.
On Saturday 21st July, Clare’s Summer Horticultural and Produce Show is being held from 2pm at the Town Hall. Classes include fruit and vegetables, cookery preserves, cut flowers and pot plants, homemade wines, floral art, crafts and a children’s section.
Alternatively, if you’re looking for a bit of culture this weekend, why not come along to Mill Green Cricket Club, Shudy Camps near Haverhill to enjoy Music on the Meadow, with the internationally renowned Pavão String Quartet. Starting at 4pm on Saturday, the event includes a real ale bar, children’s entertainment and face painting, and music and dancing into the night.
Refreshments are available but you are more than welcome to bring a picnic. Tickets cost £12 per person; accompanied children under the age of14 enter for free.
To celebrate London 2012, the Olympic Big Day Out is taking place from 10am on Wednesday 25th July and is a free event for young people and their families, featuring a wide range of activities, workshops, information and advice, all centred around the Olympics.]]>
