The grounds are open from 5pm, so that people can take a picnic, or buy one to eat before the performance. The surroundings are beautiful, so we decided to do just that.
It was a wee bit chill, but very pleasant, and less rushed than eating early at home.
Good show too - Henry V.
After the play, at about 10.45, the sky was clear and starlit, and an orangey crescent moon looked huge behind the trees as we drove home.
