While we were at the rally, we noticed that the Pop up Globe was open and Hamlet was on.

Having had hearing aids for most of my adult life since meningitis as a teenager, I have always avoided these types of shows as usually I can’t hear anything and the whole exercise is just a bore but armed with brand new technology hearing aids, I thought I’d give this one a go.
After starting with a glass of wine in the bar area, we wandered into the pre seating area under the trees and into the theatre.
There was a lot that I couldn’t hear as the stage is almost surrounded with the audience on three sides so they talk in all directions. This means the lip reading function is unavailable largely but I could still make out enough of what was going on and it was just fun being there and taking it all in. These are good hearing aids too!
For some reason I seemed be able to hear more in the second half but put that down to more mayhem and shouting 🙂 …a Great show!
Its an amazing venue and being just “popped up” in different locations, they take it pretty seriously with a nice bar and seated area under some trees. The artwork and the décor was something special too along with the Minstrels wandering around with their costumes playing their instruments.

Good seating and nice people directing you around. Its a great setup. Well worth doing and only 5 minutes walk to our Motorhome afterwards 🙂
