"A trivial comedy for serious people"
Oscar Wilde’s “The Importance of Being Earnest” takes a big pointy stick of satire and jabs the ridiculous late Victorian upper classes squarely in the ribs. You won’t be laughing with these ludicrous characters – you will be laughing at them – over and over and over again.
Come and enjoy a summer evening in the beautiful gardens of Hamptworth Lodge. You will be treated to a fresh interpretation of Wilde’s classic comedy, bringing out the best of his wicked wit and sexual innuendo. With gorgeous costumes it will be a visual delight not to be missed!
Come early, bring a picnic and enjoy a hilarious theatrical experience

One of the nation’s best-loved artists comes to Mottisfont this summer in a new exhibition of work by Quentin Blake and other leading contemporary children’s illustrators. Visitors will be able to see for the first time 21 new drawings made by Quentin for the hit West End production of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, full of his usual wit and sharp-eyed observations. There will also be stunning watercolour illustrations by artists including Michael Foreman, Emma Chichester Clark, John Burningham, Helen Oxenbury, Rebecca Cobb and Oliver Jeffers. The stories illustrated range from classics such as Treasure Island, Alice in Wonderland and classic fairy tales to works by Terry Jones and Michael Morpurgo.
Visiting families can take inspiration from the exhibition and set off on an epic imaginative story trail around the house and grounds, creating their own illustrated books as they go. On special event weekends in August there are lots of additional hands-on activities, including helping to make the biggest picture book ever! You might even get some tips from Quentin Blake himself.
The fun starts on 19 July and runs every day until 14 September 2014, 10am to 5pm, no additional charge.

Winterbourne Opera will be returning to the cattle ring in Salisbury Market in two weeks time with Donizetti’s comic masterpiece The Elixir of Love. Audiences will be transported to the colourful world of the seaside in the 1960’s, the escapism and the fun of an English holiday where the sun always shines! It promises a roller coaster of holiday flirting, romance and rejection, and the comic possibilities presented by credulous campers confronted by a flamboyant fraudster!
This year, under the musical direction of Calum Fraser, we have talented young professionals, both as soloists and as our orchestra, all supported by Winterbourne Opera’s own chorus. It promises glorious music in a vibrant, sparkling and memorable production.
