On Monday 31st July we went to see Annie Get Your Gun at the Lavender Theatre – a recently erected outdoor space amongst lavender fields in Reigate Road, Epsom. A new venture for Mayfield Lavender.. the owners of the family-run lavender farm in Banstead. Fortunately, it was a lovely evening and the setting perfect. We were welcomed into the theatre after passing through the stunning shop with beautiful gifts including ‘lavender chocolate bars’ – outside one could buy drinks and enjoy delicious eats before the performance.
The show included celebrated stars from the music world – SuRie (represented the United Kingdom in the Eurovision Song concert in 2018) as Anna, Charlie Mccullagh (Frank) and many other wonderful performers including three children.
We were enthralled by the magic of this open-air show, tapping our feet to the famous tunes including “no business like show business” and ‘Doin’ what comes natur’lly’.
I can honestly say it was one of our best evenings out! Huge congratulations to Director Simon Hardwick and his team.
Tickets are still available until the show ends on Saturday 5th August!
On sale today at lavendertheatre.com.
As locals we hope that this innovative exciting venture will continue – another jewel for our area.
