When Tom Lambert, botanist and TV gardening personality, receives a call from Inland Revenue enquiring about his public relations consultant Joanna Flint, he can honestly say he has never heard of her. By lunchtime, he knows all about Miss Flint: his accountant and ex wife confesses that she invented Miss Flint as a tax dodge. This tricky situation sets the stage for sparkling comedy.
Buscot Park Theatre has been made available to us by kind permission of Faringdon Collection Trust, Lord Faringdon, James and Lucinda Henderson. The theatre is set in the East Pavilion on the east side of Buscot House. Buscot Park’s theatre dates from the 1930’s. It seats 64 in a raked auditorium with purpose-built armchairs covered in fire-proof velvet. The vaulted ceiling provides excellent acoustics and an audio system is available for the hard of hearing. There is an orchestra pit below large enough for 20, and a podium can be raised for the audience to see the conductor. A Steinway “baby grand” piano is kept in the wings. Full stage lighting is available as well as a digital audiovisual display system.
Parking is available on the grounds near the theatre. Please note, there are no wheelchair facilities in the theatre. Vehicle access is via the gated entrance on the A417 between Lechlade and Faringdon. Click here for map.
