Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice is hosting ‘Live at the Pavilion: Sense and Sensibility’, a magical evening of theatre and picnic under the sky. Jane Austen’s lively tale of love and heartbreak will be brought to life at King Edward’s School’s cricket pavilion this September – in a bid to raise vital funds for a Birmingham hospice.
The performance follws the loves and lives of the famous Dashwood sisters as they make their first forays into the exciting world of Regency society. Spectators will be able to enjoy a luxury picnic hamper alongside the performance, whichincludes honey glazed gammon, homemade quiche, seasonal berry Eton Mess and more. Prosecco, wine and other drinks will also be available to purchase.
All funds from the picnic will go towards Birmingham St Mary’s, which provides vital care and support to local people living with life-limiting illness.
Sense and Sensibility will be performed by the Chapterhouse Theatre Company from 4.30pm to 9pm. Tickets cost £16 for adults. Picnic hampers start at £14.50 and include cutlery, plates and napkins. Spectators are encouraged to bring their own picnic blankets or deck chairs.
