We’re having a Midsummer Night’s Party, to celebrate the improved weather (although as I write it’s raining…). The picture of opulence and excess, we thought this would be the perfect theme to prove that a fabulous gathering can be had on the cheap! We’ll be logging our progress right here for you to see.
Merry and Tragical! Tedious and Brief! That is, hot ice and wonderous strange snow. How shall we find the concorde of this discorde?
Theseus, Act 1, A Midsummer Night’s Dream
How indeed, Billy Shakes?! How indeed. Stay tuned to find out about the concorde of our discorde…
Please Note: British Summertime = crap. We had to call this one off due to monsoon rains – boo! Never ones to disappoint folks that we’ve promised a party, we’re now organising THIS! Go check it out!
