Watch an outdoor theatre performance at Gibside

Actors on stage outdoors in Shakespearean costume

With the light nights and late-evening sun, we're ready to make the most of the summer with open air theatre performances. Are you?

Coming to see an open air theatre performance in Gibside's walled garden is the perfect excuse to gather friends and family, prepare a picnic that a Michelin-starred chef would approve of, and of course, relax.

We have three shows this year, each one celebrating a year of 'Women and Power', and each one with it's own twist and turns.

A Midsummer Night's Dream, Wednesday 20 June, 7-9pm

Shakespeare's comedy of love and intrigue, magic and mayhem, is brought to life in a funny and exuberant production.

Little Women, Thursday 5 July, 7-9pm

Gibside and Chapterhouse Theatre Company are proud to present Louise May Alcott's classic novel, Little Women. It's a timeless story of four sisters - Jo, Beth, Meg and Amy - and their life during the Civil War in America.

Alice in Wonderland, Wednesday 8 August, 6-8pm

Take a trip down the rabbit hole within Gibside's Georgian walled garden as Chapterhouse Theatre Company present the classic tale of Alice's Adventures in Wonderland.
