Sunset Picnic in the Garden

Sunset Picnic in the Garden

About Sunset Picnic in the Garden

Join us for an exclusive event in the garden this summer when Long Hill stays open late for our Sunset Picnic in the Garden summer series. We are thrilled to be partnering with the Newburyport-based group, Theatre in The Open, who will perform a variety of intimate shows featuring music, poetry and theatre. More details coming soon for each event. This after-hours event is the perfect date night opportunity or to join friends or family for a fun evening of entertainment and nature in an idyllic setting.

  • June 19 – Garden Music

Join us for a selection of art songs and arias that belong in the garden with mezzo soprano Kathryn Tolley and Theater in the Open. Relax in, or wonder about, the Sedgwick Gardens while enjoying a program of songs celebrating the natural world by Grieg, Mozart, Handel and Hahn.

  • July 10 – Garden Poetry

Join Theater in the Open performers as they populate the Sedgwick Gardens with poems celebrating the natural world. Wander through the gardens and encounter garden poetry performed interactively, while surrounded by the natural beauty that inspired it.

  • August 28 – Metamorphoses

Join us for a performance of Theater in the Open’s Metamorphoses, an original play about transformation and growth inspired by Ovid’s mythological epic. Weaving poetry, movement and music in the Sedgwick Gardens, performers will explore the loves and tragedies that shape us, and how we continuously transform ourselves in response.

Pre-registered individuals or groups will be given a socially distant picnic spot in the gardens to spread out their blanket and enjoy the evening.

Please BYO reusable water bottles to reduce waste. Picnic blankets, lawn chairs, and food are encouraged!

A weather decision, if necessary, will be communicated to all participants by 10am on the day of the picnic series.

Meeting point is by the large porch on the main house.

Time: 6:00pm – 8:00pm
Trustee Member: $20
Nonmember: $25
