Summer evening entertainment at Uppark

One of the highlights of the English summer season is the chance to enjoy outdoor entertainment in the glorious setting of a historic National Trust landscape.

The live entertainment and beautiful setting is provided, so all you need to do is pack a picnic and a blanket and you’ve got all the ingredients for a perfect summer evening.

The Pirates of Penance 

Saturday 4th August, 7pm – 9pm

With hilarious melodrama, sharp satire and glittering wit, "The Pirates of Penzance" is as fresh as if it had been written today. Frederick, apprenticed to the Pirates since a child, learns that he was born in a leap year on 29th February, and that he is contracted to the Pirate King until his 21st BIRTHDAY, not his 21st year; will his sweetheart, Mabel, wait that long for him? Join us this summer with a picnic and sunset in Uppark's gardens to find out Frederick's fate!

Tickets: £16 Adults, £8 Children.  Booking essential on 03442 491895 or book online.
