Bringing the West End to your Private Chalet
You’ve planned your ski holiday for your closest family and friends. The private chef’s Michelin style menu of your favourite dishes is prepared and the Perrier-Jouët Champagne is waiting on ice. But you’re a bit stuck for entertainment ideas. Here at Consensio, we have teamed up with Revels in Hand, an incredible new private theatre company, to bring you the most exclusive of theatrical escapes, bespoke and uniquely crafted for our award-winning luxury spaces.
Revels in Hand is the brainchild of Melanie Fullbrook, Freddie Hutchins and Lucy Eaton, three actors who met at Cambridge University and are passionate about reviving the lost leisure of privately performed theatre. Travelling the length and the breadth of the globe, the team mindfully evaluates the layout of each of their client’s settings in order to deliver the perfect play chosen especially for the space. Their intimately set plays make for a perfect pairing with the alpine luxury of a Consensio Chalet, whether it is a romantic comedy set in the guest bedroom or a French farce in the lounge.
“Revels in Hand offers something different. Rather than immersive, we’re inclusive and intimate, bringing theatre closer so our audiences can get right up to our characters – close enough to see the laughter lines! This intimacy is something which is so often missed on a larger stage.” – Lucy Eaton, Co-founder
This team of experienced actors are on a mission to bring joy to theatre lovers around the world with bespoke rendition of plays by the likes of Shakespeare, Noël Coward and John Vanbrugh. Their private performances have received rave reviews from critics at the Independent, The Times and more. With no limit on creativity, anything is possible once they take charge of an evening, and this exclusive theatre company are now available for bookings to add an extra level of artistic sophistication to your Consensio holiday.
What we love about Revels in Hand is that each of their plays is unique to your party, from adding your family pet or company name to the script to inviting a member of your party to join in the performance, to even writing a whole new play for your evening. Whether for your family holiday or as the pièce de résistance for your corporate soirée, their exceptional theatre experiences are sure to become a treasured memory.
“This is theatre in its purest form. Inviting actors to one’s home or to a private gathering was the thing to do in Shakespearean times and it’s our ambition to revive this definitive form of entertainment, so loved by the aristocracy and royalty. This is the perfect luxury for any host to ensure that their guests come away in a state of awe and admiration and that they talk about the occasion for weeks to come.”
If you want to indulge in the arts and hire Revels in Hand for your next Consensio holiday, simply mention it to your 24/7 private concierge manager and they will arrange.
