Outdoor theatre: Persuasion - Fri 14 June 2024 (Gates 6pm, performance 7pm)

Bring a picnic and sit back, relax & enjoy a performance in front of the romantic ruins. Suitable for audiences of all ages this adaptation of Jane Austen’s witty and poignant love story is packed with harmony, hilarity and plenty of hats.

  • Booking essential

Anne Elliott is persuaded to reject Frederick Wentworth by her family and friends but when the Elliott's circumstances alter and Wentworth returns 8 years later, as a commended naval officer no less, old sparks are rekindled… But can either be convinced to give love a second chance?

Too many characters and not enough actors will see this much-loved Jane Austen novel brought to life in a comedic and potentially hat-astrophic production. In a similarly choreographed, character-swapping style to our critically acclaimed productions of The Importance of Being Earnest (2018), The Three Musketeers (2020) and A Comedy of Errors (2022), audiences will love this truly unique adaptation!
