Gifford Lea showed its support for the regional arts scene by sponsoring a renowned Chester theatre.
Gifford Lea teamed up with Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre, one of the country’s best-loved open air theatre this summer. Residents were treated to welcome drinks and nibbles and a captivating performance of 'Much A Do about Nothing' on Wednesday 8th August.
James Cobb, sales and marketing director for Inspired Villages, says: “Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre is known for its wonderful, captivating productions, performed outdoors in the glorious setting of Grosvenor Park.
“People travel from across the region to watch the productions, and our residents at Gifford Lea are lucky to have the venue within easy reach. It makes for an enjoyable and memorable outing with their friends or family.”
Since 2010 the Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre has been delighting theatre-lovers. It regularly plays to sold-out audiences across the summer, who flock to the park in Chester to watch the outdoor productions while enjoying picnics and fizz. The venue even reserves some of its performances for the over-60s.
James adds: “Theatre enriches the lives of young and old, from all walks of life, and it’s important that it’s given the support it deserves.
“For today’s retirees, a trip to the theatre is one of their favourite pastimes. After leaving the world of work behind, they have more time to do the things they love and embrace new interests.
“It’s great that the venue includes exclusive performances of their shows just for the over-60s. We’re proud to be sponsoring the theatre and look forward to more of its exciting productions.”
