Summer theatre and music in Surrey

One of the highlights of the summer season is the chance to enjoy outdoor entertainment in the glorious setting of a National Trust garden or parkland. The live entertainment and beautiful setting is provided, so all you’ll need to pack is a picnic and a blanket to have all the ingredients for a perfect summer evening at Hatchlands Park, Claremont Landcape Garden or Polesden Lacey. For classical music look no further than Leith Hill Place with their indoor classical music recital series.
