A bond which ties us to every stone – Mrs Bakers Medway Theatre Company – Rose Festival – Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th July
Councillor Heney wishes to advise constituents of Mrs Bakers Medway Theatre Company returns to Dublin again this year with ‘A bond which ties us to every stone’, a living history experience which will take place from 11am until 4pm in the Walled Garden of St Anne’s Park during the Rose Festival this Saturday 16th and Sunday 17th July. It is free to access and no booking is required. The performances are set in the early 1880s with Lord and Lady Ardilaun who are joined by their head gardener and their architect to discuss their ambitions for the continued development and expansion of their Dublin estate and mansion.
This is an initiative of St Anne’s Park Community Archaeology Programme 2023 delivered through the Heritage Plan and a partnership between DCC Parks Biodiversity and Landscape Services and the Planning and Property Development Department Archaeology and Heritage Sections. The programme, which is its third year, aims to engage communities with the social, architectural, archaeological and the historic landscape design importance of the park. A community archaeology excavation and schools programme will take place from September. The programme has received grant support from the Heritage Council and the Creative Ireland Programme.
