Outdoor Theatre Season brings drama to Nottinghamshire
Summer has arrived almost out of nowhere, and typically, the British weather has followed. But rain will not stop play, or plays in this case, as Outdoor Theatre Season takes hold across Nottinghamshire.
Visit the county throughout the summer and be wowed by inspiring theatrical performances in the great outdoors. With castles, historic houses and country parks all getting involved, as well as more unusual venues including Creswell Crags, visitors will be spoilt for choice.
Set amidst beautiful gardens, and against stunning backdrops which really set the scene, visitors will feel at the heart of the action, and can enjoy live performance without the restriction of rows of seats.
From well-loved tales by classic authors such as Hound of the Baskervilles and Pride and Prejudice, to more contemporary ideas including Old Mrs Pongy and The Pirate Girl, outdoor theatre provides the perfect summer day out.
With children’s plays and traditional Shakespearean tales, you’ll find something to entertain everyone. Pack your tartan blanket, your best picnic basket and take prime position on the lawn of many an historic house this summer.
There’s plenty of entertainment to be enjoyed indoors too, with Nottinghamshire’s local entertainment venues providing a year-round calendar of events to enjoy.
Tickets for some events can be bought via our website, or directly from the Nottingham Tourism Centre on Smithy Row.
