Garden theatre at Nunnington Hall
Picnics at the ready! Whether you're looking for mystery and adventure, or a classic romance, we've got outdoor theatre performances for everyone at Nunnington Hall this summer.
All of our summer theatre events take place outdoors in the beautiful organic garden, and we're hardy sorts, so they'll only be cancelled if the weather is unsafe. Bring along a delicious picnic, something comfy to sit on and plenty of layers if you're coming to an evening performance - even if it's a lovely sunny day, it can get chilly in the garden. If you don't have time to arrange a picnic, the tea-garden will be opening serving light refreshments.
