Summer theatre at Mottisfont

An audience sits in front of the hosue at Mottisfont, Hampshire for an evening theatre performance

Pack a picnic and enjoy two outdoor performances in our grounds this summer. Immersion Theatre are staging Oscar Wilde's The Importance of Being Earnest on 23 July and family favourite Peter Pan on 29 August. Please note, both performances are now sold out.

Tickets for our outdoor theatre performances are priced at £16 for adults and £8 for children, or £42 for a family of four. Booking is essential - you can book online via the links below, or call the National Trust box office on 0344 249 1895. A 5% booking fee applies.

Gates open an hour before the performance starts, and there will be a short interval halfway through. Both performances take place on lawns beside the house. A kiosk in the grounds will be selling some refreshments, and toilet facilities are located close by.

Bring a picnic and something to sit on, and dress for the weather - performances will go ahead rain or shine. Folding chairs or blankets are fine - there'll be an area at the front reserved for anyone sitting at ground level.

Please be considerate of other audience members with what you bring - please no parasols, gazebos or large folding tables.

Outdoor theatre: The Importance of Being Earnest

SOLD OUT: Monday 23 July, 7pm (gates open at 6pm). Immersion Theatre invite you to an evening of open-air decadence and hilarity as they present Oscar Wilde's wittiest comedy. Join foppish bachelors Jack and Algernon on their latest Bunburying exploits replete with mistaken identities, icy women, trivial banter and, of course, muffins.

Outdoor theatre: Peter Pan

SOLD OUT: Wednesday 29 August, 6pm (gates open 5pm). Soar away to Neverland with this magical musical from Immersion Theatre. Get ready to think happy thoughts and fly high as the mischievous Peter embarks on an awfully big adventure, introducing the Darling children to the lost boys, the cheeky Tinkerbell, the hilarious Smee, and a host of other exciting characters before facing the most feared villain of them all, the infamous Captain Hook.
