As I mentioned in our review of “Private Lives” at the Torch Theatre, we made the most of our vintage-style evening. As the play was written and first performed in the 1930s, vintage-style fancy dress was encouraged. We just added some vintage-style accessories to two of my current dresses. You can read about how we recreated our 1930s-inspired fashion looks here. Take a look at some snapshots of our evening, which also happened to be Rebecca’s 17th Birthday:
Madison’s Bar & Restaurant, Milford Marina
I can’t believe it has taken me this long to go to Madison’s Bar and Restaurant on Milford Marina. I have followed their Facebook Page since they opened with all the best intentions of going along. They serve all of my favourite things- delicious vegan food, cocktails and vintage style!
We were given such a warm welcome and showed to a table. There’s so much to see in there, I’d love to have a good look around and take lots and lots of photos. They have an amazing vintage cocktail menu, but we just wanted a mocktail. They only serve one mocktail (pictured above) but thankfully it sounded good to us anyway and indeed was delicious. It would be great to have more choices of different mocktails in future though.
We loved the atmosphere and decor of Madisons- the Marina Mile Speakeasy and will definitely be back for mocktails and a meal soon. We celebrated with family the following night and she’s celebrating with her friends during half term when they all have more time.
Private Lives Press Night at the Torch Theatre
We headed to the Torch Theatre excited to watch Noël Coward’s Private Lives. At the Torch, the wine (and orange juice for us) was flowing and a choir was singing. You can read more about this part of the evening in our “Private Lives” review post.
Thinking back now, I assume the choir performing was the Torch Theatre’s very own Torch Theatre Voices Choir.
Oriel Joanna Field Gallery
While we waited for the show, we headed to the Joanna Field Gallery to see this season’s exhibition.
Lloyd Grayshon’s photography of Pembrokeshire will be on display until 29th October.
“I’m thrilled to present my photography in the Torch Theatre Gallery. The shots were taken whilst on various projects as a videographer and drone pilot allowing me to capture the stunning beauty of Pembrokeshire from unique angles and perspectives.“
Upstairs in the bar, entertainment was provided by the lovely Sarah Benbow and Mark Jones. Mark Jones was my music teacher at secondary school and Sarah Benbow was my choir leader when my children’s school first launched a community choir. I loved being a part of her choir-it was such a happy time- and I still want to join another one but we were so spoilt, I can’t find anything that feels the same.
Then it was time for the show, which we enjoyed.
I can’t believe we only noticed at the end of the night that they were serving vintage cocktails and mocktails. We could have ordered one for the interval. I will look out for a special drinks menu during my next visit!
It was a lovely evening. Private Lives at the Torch Theatre is running until 21st October.
