I haven’t been out with my camera for weeks, so it’s great to be doing Photo Sunday again. Yesterday, my mum, sister and I went to Boughton Monchelsea Place, near Maidstone in Kent, for a spot of open air theatre, courtesy of the Changeling Theatre company (review coming later to The Blog of Theatre Things).
When I say ‘a spot of theatre’, I actually mean quite a lot – we were seeing a double bill: Two Gentlemen of Verona in the afternoon followed by Hay Fever in the evening. Because Boughton Monchelsea is a bit out in the sticks, we decided to hang around and entertain ourselves for the two hours between shows, which gave me a chance to wander off with the camera for a bit.
Fortunately, it’s a beautiful venue, offering a view not only of the manor house but also of the estate’s deer park and miles of open Kent countryside. We even caught a brief glimpse of the world’s only Vulcan bomber, which made a rare appearance at the Herne Bay air show yesterday afternoon (although no pics, sadly; it was too far away).
If you have the chance to see Changeling in the future, I really recommend them; they’re completely bonkers, but in a very good way. And if you do go, Boughton Monchelsea is a great venue, so don’t forget your camera.
