The new Grange Park Opera’s new opera house “Theatre in the Woods” is being built just behind West Horsley Place. Now the leaves are down you can just about see it from the Epsom Road. The site belongs to the Mary Roxburghe Trust, another not-for-profit arts charity to whom Bamber Gascoigne has transferred ownership of the old house but which hasn’t really got going in earnest yet. Both organisations are worth supporting – and if anyone in Bookham likes opera, tickets for the inaugural season starting in June are already on sale.
