"I think its a magical garden, I love it" Alice, aged 9
The first turf of the exciting new Amphitheatre at Trebah Garden was cut early on Wednesday morning (15th Nov 2012).
The project will create an outdoor performance space inspired by traditional Cornish Prayer Pits. It will be constructed using local granite in a semi circular arrangement high in the Chilean Combe. Work will continue throughout the winter and into the early spring, with further work to follow in winter2013/14. The finished result will provide seating for approximately 50 people and a staged area. We hope to be ready for performances in spring/summer 2014.
Due to digger activity Badgers Walk and the new Chilean Combe path will be closed periodically over the next few weeks as we get started on our exciting new Amphitheatre project.
