Mud, blood and stiff upper-lips!

It's the History of Britain as you've never seen it before. Join the critically-acclaimed Pantaloons Theatre Company for a breathless race through the centuries in this delightfully inventive open-air show.

Harold II and William the Conqueror don't see eye to eye. Henry VIII decides five marriages just isn't enough. Queen Victoria is most certainly not amused.

This historically hysterical show is packed with songs, sketches and silliness and is suitable for all ages.

"An energetic and playful romp through the centuries" (Mail on Sunday)

Bring along a picnic, picnic rug or chairs and enjoy this special outdoor performance in the gardens.

"We are such stuff as dreams are made on..." Join The Pantaloons Theatre Company on a voyage to an enchanted island full of adventure, romance, magic and... monsters!

The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons put their own unique - and hilarious - twist on Shakespeare's tale of shipwrecks, sorcerers and silly servants. Expect music and mayhem, poetry and puppetry in one of the Bard's best-loved plays - in the open-air where it belongs.

Bring along a picnic, picnic rug or chairs and enjoy this special outdoor performance in the gardens.
