In Praise of Ragley Hall

Ragley Hall as Wikipedia will inform you is a stately home in Alcester and the seat of the Marquess of Hertford

It also happens to be within walking distance of our new home in England.

These days, stately homes have to be somewhat commerical to survive.   And so let us start by the delightful evening of open air Shakepeare that awaited us recently

We had a rather wonderful time and we hope that the ticket price paid will support Ragley and also the travelling company that performed.

The performance was so good that Agata summarised the night by saying  "I never realised that Shakespeare had this dark side to his work"

And Swimming Too
We have already commented that Ragley hosts the Evesham Triathlon Club and we are members of the latter and now regularly attend the Ragley Open Water swim session

In England this swimming opportunity is about as good as it gets!

The Summer Schedule

Ragley is doing a wonderful job and so when a representative came over with a schedule we thought it was the least we could do to publicise it.

We hope to see you there.  Besides special events you can visit Ragley for a tour and they have a nice Cream Tea- room too.
