Over the years we have found low evening light is the loveliest time to explore the gardens.
A twilight performance in the theatre makes the occasion very special. Regulars to our twilight events know to come early. We recomment arriving 5pm, perhaps 5.30. Bring a picnic and bottle of wine, low fold-up (beach) chairs & spare warm clothing (just in case).
Allow time to enjoy the picnic and more time to explore the garden in the glorious soft light of that time of day. And prepare yourself for a treat.
Forming part of our Music of the Highlands and Islands Twilight Series, Evergreen Ensemble brings you 'Airs for the Seasons', a musical tour through a Scottish country garden. Shane Lestideau (violin), Rosy Hunt (cello), Jessica Foot (oboe and fiddle) and Simon Rickard (bassoon) bring you works from 18th century Scotland by James Oswald, each piece inspired by a flower or vegetable with commentary by Simon Rickard. Also pieces by Purcell, McGibbon and fiery Scottish jigs and reels.
A special fundraising event at Cloudehill, well-known and highly esteemed local jazz group QUADRIFIED will be giving a twilight performance in the Green Theatre. An end of summer-beginning of autumn community thank you to the Olinda CFA, not to be missed. Quadrified is Ellie Lamb on trombone, Lauren Mullarey on tenor sax, Alex Roper on drums and Elise Winterflood on double bass. Bring a salad and drinks, maybe a bottle of wine as the CFA will selling sizzling sausages! Bring the kids along and enjoy a wander through the garden at twilight to the wonderful sound of jazz from Quadrified.
