Garden theatre at Nunnington Hall
Picnics at the ready! Whether you want to bring your little ones for a classic fairytale or have a grownup evening with Jane Austen, 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 orgainc 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.

Brought to life by award winning writer Laura Tuner, this brand-new adaptation celebrates the 200th Anniversary of Jane Austen’s death and promises to be the most splendid evening of the summer. So, join friends and family as you picnic under a beautiful summer sky and lose yourself in this unforgettable love story. After all, it is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of a good fortune must be in want of a wife.
