Erddig Saturday Lates
Combine striking colours, scents and relaxing spaces with live music and outdoor theatre.
We’re continuing the Yorke spirit of entertainment and performance with our programme of outdoor theatre and music on Saturday evenings this summer from the 29 July.
The Yorke family loved to entertain and were born performers putting on plays and concerts for their many guests. Philip Yorke II put all his savings into buying the organ in the music room when he was just 15 years old in 1865 whilst our last squire was well known locally for his virtuoso skills in playing the musical saw! In fact Philip III spent several years touring the country in an old charabanc with his own theatre troupe, the London and Country Theatre Players.
Philip would often take on leading parts and kept an old review from the Bexhill-on-sea Observer;
“He was not always word perfect on Fridays, let alone Mondays, a circumstance that tended to keep the rest of the company on the hop. But the swish of the waves on the Pavilion floor was good cover for his prompter."
Hopefully our performers will be a bit more polished than Philip!
Saturday Late performances will be between 6.30pm and 8.30pm and are normal admission, so free to National Trust members.
29 July - 'No Place Like Home' outdoor theatre by Peter Read
19 August - Sonanta Flamenca sounds of the Mediterranean

Relax with a picnic in the garden or go wild in Wolf's Den whilst you absorb the evening sun.
Our theatre evenings are ticket only, for both members and non members, so be sure to book early for one of our sell-out performances from Chapterhouse Theatre Company to avoid disappointment.
