Frequently asked questions 

Will the tearoom be open?

Yes, the tearoom and the ice cream kiosk will be open from when the gates open, throughout the first half and the interval  and then they will both close. A selection of hot and cold drinks, snacks and ice cream will be available on the evening. Looking for more? Have a look at our VIP packages. 

Can I bring a chair?

Yes you can bring a chair, we ask for low back, camping style chairs if possible to maximise the view for all of the audience. If you are brining a blanket to sit on we have a reserved area at the front so your view isn't restricted. 

Can I have a table and candles?

Unfortunately we don't have space in amongst the audience for tables. Also no naked flames or BBQs please as we are in close proximity to our historic buildings. 

Can I bring alcohol?

Yes you can - we want you to have a fun and relaxing evening with us. We will also have wine and local ales available from our tearoom on the night. 

Can I leave my car overnight in your car park?

We don't have any provision for overnight parking within the grounds, including campervans.

Do I need to book in advance?

We recommend booking in advance as we only have a limited number of tickets available for each performance. If we have tickets left you will be able to purchase them on the day.  

Will the house and garden will be open?

The house and garden will close at 5pm and won't be available throughout the performance. If you would like to visit the property you can do so on the day, but you will need to buy your tickets seperately for this.  

Can I bring my dog?

The only dogs allowed to the performance will be assistance dogs. 

Do I have to pay for parking?

No, parking is free of charge after 5pm to people attending the evening performances.
