A summer of entertainment

A hamper and blanket set for a picnic

Make the most of long summer days by enjoying alfresco entertainment at Cliveden. Pack a picnic hamper to enjoy with friends and family as you watch live theatre and musical performances.

Cliveden Entertains

For the past four centuries Cliveden has been a hub of entertainment and socialising. Guests visiting the estate have received the highest level of generosity, with games, dining, country walks and entertainment. Now it's your turn. See what the summer has in store for you...

Outdoor theatre

One of the top highlights of the summer is outdoor theatre. This year we're particularly looking foward to Jane Austen's Pride and Prejudice on the 25th and 25th of August, 7pm to 9pm. Booking for theatre is essential (available from 23 May) and tickets start from £9.50 (child) and £16.50 (adult). See more here.

Live music

Every Saturday in June sees acoustic jazz band Pocket Full of Swing bring swing classics to life in the Illex Grove. Laze in the summer sun whilst you soak up the vintage atmosphere.

Alfresco dining

The live entertainment and beautiful setting is provided, all you’ll need to do is pack a picnic and a blanket to have all the ingredients for a perfect summer evening. Whether dining in the idylic Illex Grove or the Japanese inspired Water Garden, there's always a cosy spot for you to lounge in Cliveden's historic gardens.
