Sewerby Hall and Gardens, Bridlington
Rusticus have been working with the team at Sewerby since 2012 and since then have provided over events in Summer, Spring, Winter and Autumn with over 500 individual performances! Sewerby Hall is a much-loved venue situated in an unique cliff-top position on the Yorkshire Coast, overlooking the bay of Bridlington and the North Sea. Run by East Riding of Yorkshire Council, and having benefited from Heritage Lottery funded restoration work in 2014, the house and grounds retain the affections of both locals and holiday-makers alike. Families flock to the mini-zoo, the outdoor games and putting and the playground, via the Land Train from Bridlington town centre, and Rusticus have relished the opportunity to excite audience’s imaginations with adventures inspired by the pirate and smuggling traditions of the coast, the changing seasons, and the 1930’s heritage of the hall’s connection with Amy Johnson. The events programme for 2020 is a huge celebration of wildlife – inspired by the 55th Wildlife Photographer of the Year Exhibition; on loan from the Natural History Museum, which will visit Sewerby Hall and Gardens in April 2020. The exhibition features 100 breathtaking images from fascinating animal behaviour to remarkable wild landscapes, and we can’t wait to bring some of those beloved species to life, Rusticus style!
