Artists at Bassinaud
When we acquired Bassinaud back in late 2021 our intention was always to create a place where artists could come and feel inspired, think about their practice and even make new work. With this in mind we dedicated one of our cottages, The Studio, as a space for artists.
A chance conversation in December 2021 led to us putting out ‘feelers’ to see if people living nearby might be interested in coming together to put on a play. The response was overwhelming, with more than 30 people turning up on a cold Sunday in January 2022, and so Bassinaud Players was born. Since then Bassinaud Players have performed Shakespeare’s ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ and ‘Much Ado About Nothing’ and Alan Ayckbourn’s comedy ‘Round and Round the Garden’ to sell-out audiences.
