We drove through the Hazelwood Estate and attended a performance of 3 Becket short plays. It was very interesting to see the Hazelwood Manor House. Hopefully someone will restore it. The plays were done in the industrial complex and they were excellent!

Hazelwood House is definitely worth a visit - a short drive from the town and in its infancy as a public space, it is really interesting to see what the new owners have in mind for its future, which promises to be very bright indeed....More

Expected a tired old wreck of a building that had no future. Just shows how wrong I was. An amazing and delightful exhibition of huge, enormous, massive (and small) art. You'll never see anything like this.

They’re one and the same. He was from Germany original Bally so both were anglicized spellings of his name. However, we tend to use Cassels.
