THE MUSICAL PHENOMENON COMES TO PLYMOUTH
After nearly a decade since the last sell-out UK tour, Cameron Mackintosh’s acclaimed Broadway production of Boubil and Schönberg’s musical Les Misérables will play at Theatre Royal Plymouth in 2019.
With scenery inspired by the paintings of Victor Hugo, this brilliant new staging has taken the world by storm and has been hailed “Les Mis for the 21st Century” (Huffington Post). Seen by over 120 million people worldwide in 51 countries and in 22 languages, Les Misérables is undisputedly one of the world’s most popular musicals.
Cothay Manor & Gardens, Wellingtonhello
Said to be the finest example of a small medieval manor in England, Cothay dates back to the 14th century, and has been lovingly restored with period furniture and fabrics by the current owners.
Twelve acres of magical gardens surround the manor. Many garden rooms, each a garden in itself, are set off a 200 yard yew walk. In addition, fine trees, cottage garden, courtyards, and a river walk; a plantsman’s paradise. The gardens have achieved the highest accolade of two stars in the Good Garden Guide and in June 2012 featured in the Daily Telegraph’s ’20 Best Gardens in Britain’.
