On selected evenings during the summer months, the Bedruthan hotel located in Mawgan Porth, Cornwall will host a range of professional and amateur theatre productions, with groups from across the UK putting on the nation's favourite shows in a selection of outdoor theatre performances for all ages. Situated on a spectacular meadow overlooking the bay of Mawgan Porth, the hotel with be working with at least five different theatre companies to put on non-professional and critically acclaimed performances, with the open-air series starting on the 7th of May with a production of David Walliams' Awful Auntie by Heartbreak Productions.
Bedruthan's unique clifftop location (usually known for its sea-view sensory spa garden) will be transformed into a beachside outdoor theatre, welcoming guests as the sun sets. July will see timeless classics such as William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream, whilst the little ones can look forward to August with well-known favourites such as Rapunzel and Cinderella taking the stage.
Guests can make the most of the open-air experience with bespoke hampers available to purchase with tickets, promising a range of sweet and savoury treats. Expect marinated olives and handmade sandwiches from the hotel's artisan bakery, along with Cornish specials such as scotch eggs and vegetarian quiche to showcase the best of local produce. Those with a sweet tooth will be delighted to find fresh strawberries paired with Cornish clotted cream and a select smoothie of the day.
Visitors looking to extend their stay can book one of the hotel's colourful sea-view rooms. Bedruthan's newly refurbished interiors boast plenty of space to accommodate families, couples and solo travellers with breath-taking views of Mawgan Porth Beach. A Scandi-inspired retreat, Bedruthan was designed with its environment in mind, providing bright, airy spaces that celebrate the Cornish landscape. When not taking part in one of the hotel's creative workshops or enjoying the open-air theatre, there are multiple communal spaces for guests to unwind, from Sensory Spa Gardens to relaxation lounges, fireside, and poolside.
