The Grand Theatre Of Action
Trelissick Garden

The Cornish Theatre Collective presents a stunning play on land and sea in
September to celebrate the life of our greatest naval hero, Horatio Nelson.
This is a unique and exciting journey to discover the truth behind the
infamous Admiral Nelson. You'll be pressed into service at the MARITIME
MUSEUM, Falmouth to join the tars on board two vessels that will transport
you up the River Fal. On the way you'll learn what it was like aboard a Man
o' War as Nelson's bold crew tell of their heroic exploits.
The play takes place at TRELISSICK GARDEN, after which your boats will be
ready to take you back to Falmouth.
Epic and intimate by turns, the play tells of the last ten years of
Nelson's life: the great battles that shaped his fame, the love triangle
that nearly destroyed him and his last fatal defining moment at Trafalgar.
Prepare for the blast of the cannon, the romance of high society and a look
at the power struggles and politics that shaped one of the most important
icons of the last two hundred years.

Tickets: £12 (£10 CONCESSION) available from the HallFor Cornwall Box office: 01872 262466
