Take some time for yourself this summer

It is a truth universally acknowledged that Jane Austen's witty and romantic masterpiece is one of the best-loved stories of all time, dealing with the most important questions in life...

Will Mrs Bennet manage to offload her numerous daughters in record time? Will Lizzy and Darcy actually get together? Will creepy Mr Collins just go away please?

The literary classic gets the full Pantaloons treatment in this beautifully hilarious and delightfully innovative new adaptation.
Book your tickets now and join us on the Newark lawn on Friday 24 July to enjoy this fun performance.
