Children's TV Star Performs at Holker Hall

Children's TV Star Performs at Holker Hall

Holker Hall & Gardens in Cumbria is the setting for two outdoor theatre performances this August, one of which will star actress Georgina Sherrington, best known for playing the accident prone Mildred Hubble in the children's TV series, The Worst Witch.

On Tuesday 24th August at 2.30 pm, Georgina will play the lead role in the open air, Chapterhouse production of Beauty and the Beast, set in the beautiful grounds of Holker Hall.

Enjoy an afternoon of fun and family entertainment and watch this heart-warming story of friendship.  Laura Turner's inspired twist on this classic fairytale will delight children of all ages, as the character of Louisa and her friends transform their ordinary 1940's garden into a magical setting for the fairytale, Beauty and the Beast.  Children are invited to attend in fancy dress for the opportunity to join the cast in a fairytale parade during the interval.

Georgina comments; "I am incredibly excited to be joining Chapterhouse for their summer tour of 'Beauty and the Beast'.  This was one of my favourite stories when I was young and this new adaptation is sure to capture all the magic of the classic fairytale."

During your visit to Holker, sit back and relax with a family picnic or why not treat yourself to a delicious hamper or children's picnic box full of homemade goodies, all available to pre-order from the Holker Courtyard Cafe.

On Sunday 15th August at 6 pm, you can also enjoy Jane Austen's timeless classic, Pride & Prejudice in the authentic and romantic setting of Holker.
