Guildburys Theatre Company present an intimate production of Blue Stockings, the story of four female Cambridge undergraduates in 1896 and their fight for their right to an education, in the Music Room at Hatchlands Park.

  • Booking essential

Hatchlands Park was built by Fanny Boscawen, an original bluestocking, and her husband. In celebration of her legacy, Guildburys Theatre Company present Jessica Swale's acclaimed play telling the true story of the battle fought by women to be permitted to graduate from Girton College, Cambridge. Set during a tumultuous academic year from 1896, the play follows feisty Tess Moffat and her fellow students as they join the vanguard of women’s education.
