Outdoor Theatre: The Hound of the Baskervilles

Sherlock Holmes, and his assistant Doctor Watson, tackle the most baffling case of their careers in this faithful, cheeky but chilling adaptation. Join Illyria for their unique take on Conan Doyle's classic detective story.

  • Booking essential

Who killed Sir Charles Baskerville? Can anyone prevent the same fate befalling the young Sir Henry Baskerville? Is a monstrous hound really roaming Dartmoor? Why is someone systematically stealing Sir Henry's shoes? And how does a ghostly hound manage to leave vast paw-prints and other unwelcome evidence of its existence? Bring a picnic and enjoy the performance as the sun sets over the atmospheric surroundings of Hinton Ampner's parkland.
