Enjoy summer nights and outdoor theatre at Holker Hall & Gardens

On Saturday 7th July the London based Quantum Theatre company will be visiting Holker Hall with their performance of The Reluctant Dragon.

A pacey, action packed, humorous show for all the family, with live music – a fabulous chance to enjoy an unforgettable alfresco experience in a stately setting.  The performance will be starting in the Holker Parkland (just over the wall from the Gardens with the Hall as a magnificent backdrop) at 6pm.  Bring your own chairs or picnic rugs.

“We’re really excited to have a brand new title ‘The Reluctant Dragon’  by Kenneth Grahame (of Wind in the Willows fame), adapted by Michael Whitmore.  It will be pitched at families with young children and is a charming, funny and heart-warming tale involving a young boy and St George a very unaggressive poetry-loving dragon!” Quantum Theatre.
