Event Description

Celebrate flowers and the coming of spring with a unique story and music journey through the springtime blossoms of Tower Hill Botanic Garden. The performance of “Flora’s Holiday,” has been specially crafted for the Tower Hill landscape by master storyteller Diane Edgecomb and Celtic harper Margot Chamberlain and it takes the audience to some of the garden’s most beloved spots. Locations include an expansive field of daffodils, a forest glade where Pan presides, a sunset balcony with expansive views of Mount Wachusett and an open-air gazebo where the haunting Persian legend of the Nightingale and the Rose will be told. The evening’s tales, music and songs are drawn from Ancient Greek, Roman, Norse, Persian and Native American cultures delving into the mythical origins and meanings of favorite garden plants. Venture into spring with this enchanting evening stroll through Tower Hill’s botanic paradise. Each performance is limited to an audience of 30, so buy tickets early. Appropriate for adults and for children twelve years and above. Bring a cushion or light portable stool to sit on if you wish. The performance takes place rain or shine. In the event of severe weather, it will be held in the Stoddard Education Center Theater.

Tickets are $25 for Tower Hill Members, $30 for Non-Members.

Audience is limited to 30 so register early.
