2009 was the year of TimeWarp's Twenty-First Anniversary. From what had gone before there was to be no picnic, or was there? Well the short answer is yes. Sixty four of us spent the day at Oakley Court original filming location for The Rocky Horror Picture Show and we picnicked on the lawns once more. As with the past three years events the weather held up for us, although this year it was a little cooler than before.
A great time was had by all as we relaxed outside the castle, with more food that we could cope with, in fact there was enough left over to provide nibbles for the evening event.
The picnic itself ended around five, leaving everyone the chance to spend a few hours doing what they wanted. Some decided just to wander around the grounds, others (I'm talking about you Rob and Carol) went off on a mission to get specific photographs done, some of us even spent a couple of hours in the pool.
At around ten pm we all went over to one of the hotels event suites to watch The Rocky Horror Picture Show projected onto a good sized screen and partake of a Rocky Horror Cocktail or three that the hotel had created. Dana had put together a little video of last years picnic images which we watched before enjoying the movie itself.
I never fail to smile at the symmetry of watching the outside of the building that we are in on-screen and the first shots of the castle always get a cheer from us all. After the movie, we had time for one more midnight Time Warp before we found our way to our rooms or to the bar once more.
As is traditional, the next morning after a stunning breakfast several of us made our way outside once more to chat, take photos and meet up at the fountain. It's a lovely way to say farewell to our fellow fans after another great day together.
