The Pavilion at Fitzroy Gardens is a super weird super unique venue. It was a cafe/restaurant and now it’s the MKA Summer palace (or in this case, Spring). This is not a normal venue! It’s in the middle of beautiful gardens, next to the Fairies Tree and the Miniature Tudor Village (lol). A stage show in the venue might build a set or it might use the huge glass windows and the forest beyond. Perhaps you dont even want to do the show inside- maybe you want to use the Miniature Tudor Village (again: lol). Let’s talk!
