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?

Nestled within this 600 acre estate, the walled garden provides the perfect backdrop for any outdoor theatre performance.

With the help of Chapterhouse Theatre Company, on selected dates classic tales are brought to life.

It's the perfect excuse to gather friends and family, prepare a picnic that a Michelin-starred chef would approve of, and of course, relax.
