Inspired by seeing an auricula theatre here, Mrs Bee decided that she would like one of her own.
A visit to a garage sale led to a chance discussion with someone selling an auricula. 10 minutes later and we were offered a whole range of ‘doubles’. The decision was set, we needed an auricula theatre to show them off.
The one at Calke abbey is a little out of our scale, but some research and searching resulted in the theatre you see here.
It started out as a cardboard template, to get the size and scale right. a few planks of wood later and the design came to life.
