Shakespeare's Rose Theatre, Blenheim Palace

Sue and I have just returned home after a whistle-stop visit to Oxford and seeing A Midsummer Night's Dream at the pop-up theatre situated at Blenheim Palace.

On Monday we visited Oxford and had a great time walking around this historical university city and visiting the museums. We stayed in Witney and had a fantastic Thai meal at the Suwanna restaurant. On Tuesday we visited Blenheim Palace for the matinee performance of A Midsummer Night's Dream before driving back to Witney and an evening meal at the hotel. Then earlier today we drove across country - first to Stow-on-the-Wold and then onto Moreton-in-Marsh where we had a picnic lunch before travelling home to Droitwich Spa.

This is not the first time we have visited this pop-up theatre, but despite the open roof and heavy rain - it was first class entertainment and well worth the trip. For more information about this theatre see this link.

I'll be writing more about the short stay in later posts.
