Join us for this outdoor adaptation of Noel Coward’s celebrated comedy, Private Lives. Heartbreak Production promises to deliver an evening of sparkling entertainment, nostalgic music, and delicious one-liners.
Set in the East Garden with stunning views across to the Castle, the south facing, 18th century Walled Gardens are the perfect place to enjoy some early evening sunshine with friends and family, whilst enjoying one of four outdoor theatre productions this summer.
New for this year is that all outdoor theatre tickets include Park and Gardens access for the day of the performance so that people can come a bit earlier and make the most of the beautiful surroundings. On the day upgrades are also available for the Castle.
Ticket holders are encouraged to bring their own chair or blanket so that they can enjoy the performances in comfort and of course to bring their own picnic which they can savour in the relaxed, al fresco environment. Alternatively, let the Stables Café take care of the picnic for you by pre booking one of their delicious, locally sourced selections that include a mix of pastry cheese/herb straws, their signature quiche served with leaf and potato salad and of course the summer staple of strawberries and clotted cream. Children’s picnic boxes are also available.
About the show:
Raby Castle and Heartbreak Productions welcome you to L’Hotel Crevecoeur. May we please remind you to follow hotel rules (we have them for a reason) and enjoy your stay at the hotel appropriately! Whilst you are here, be on the lookout for two honeymooning couples, Elyot and Sibyl Chase and Amanda and Victor Prynne. Before Elyot married Sibyl and Victor married Amanda, Elyot and Amanda were married to each other, and unfortunately, we’ve booked them into rooms with adjacent balconies. Really, though, what could go wrong?
Pre-book your picnic when you order your tickets online:
£25 for a picnic for 2 adults. Children’s picnic box £4.50. Why not add a bottle of prosecco or wine to your order to enjoy during the show?
