Join us for an exclusive event in the garden at Long Hill when it stays open late for a Sunset Picnic in the Garden summer series. They are are partnering with the Newburyport-based group, Theatre in The Open, who will perform a variety of intimate shows featuring music, poetry and theatre. This will be a fun evening combining entertainment and nature in an idyllic setting.
For those interested we may meet an hour earlier, grab a spot for our picnic and put down our chairs and blankets (bring your own), then stroll through the gardens prior to the performance.
The description of the performance is:
Join Theater in the Open performers as they populate the Sedgwick Gardens with poems celebrating the natural world. Wander through the gardens and encounter garden poetry performed interactively, while surrounded by the natural beauty that inspired it.
Some information about the property:
From 1916 to 1978, Long Hill was the summer home of noted author and editor of The Atlantic Monthly, Ellery Sedgwick, and his family. He summered here with his first wife, Mabel Cabot Sedgwick, an accomplished horticulturist, gardener, and author of The Garden Month by Month, and his second wife, Marjorie Russell Sedgwick, a rare plants specialist—both of whom created a delightful, enchanting landscape, surrounded by more than 100 acres of woodland.
Today, visitors delight in the beauty of Long Hill’s structured and naturalistic gardens as well as a network of woodland trails. A diverse collection of trees, shrubs, and distinctive perennial plants provide color during the growing season, peaking in May and June and providing structure and beauty throughout the year.
