Holker Hall presents a season of outdoor theatre. On Saturday 10 July we’re off to see the Wizard with the Tales of Oz. The whole garden is the stage, and your little Munchkins will literally travel with Dorothy to the Emerald City. This charming ‘walk along, sing a long adventure’ is suitable for children from age 3.
Part mystery, part Scavenger Hunt, Holker Hall hosts Once upon a crime on Wednesday 11 August. It’s an interactive event that’s fun for all the family. Just make sure that your brain doesn’t get too teased and your mind too boggled whilst you seek out the solution and head towards your happily ever after!
And finally, pedalling from venue to venue with all of their set, props and costumes on the back of their bikes, the HandleBards bring environmentally sustainable Shakespeare to Holker Hall with Macbeth on Friday 20 & Saturday 21 August. Forget the tears and tragedy – this is a frantic, delirious, full-of-beans show like you’ve never seen before.

The trick to enjoy outdoor theatre is to be prepared. Seating is not provided. A rug is essential, maybe a low back chair for comfort, a hat or umbrella (to shade you from the sun of course) a well-stocked picnic basket (or check out if the venue is doing takeaways or BBQs) a tipple of your choice (I like a nice fruit juice, white!) and be a weather optimist – pack the sunscreen.
It’s great to see our annual shows continue to go from strength to strength. They are perfect for meeting up with like-minded friends and introducing family members to your passions.
