Peter Read presents The Brothers Yorke at Erddig

Philip Yorke III riding his penny farthing at Erddig

Combine striking architecture and relaxing spaces with live entertainment this summer.

Don’t miss these short performances by award-winning playwright and writer Peter Read this summer.

The Brothers Yorke is a thirty-minute play that tells the story of the last two squires of Erddig, Simon and Philip.

Full of humour and pathos it brings to life two very different brothers who both struggled to rescue a crumbling Erddig as it fell into decline. We meet the bubbling, eccentric Philip and the reticent recluse Simon, who in different ways both helped to save the property for future generations to enjoy.
