Outdoor theatre at Wharton Park

Published June 21, 2018 2.47pm


Families looking to spend more time outdoors this summer can now book up for a range of theatre performances taking place within the city's Wharton Park.

Wharton Park outdoor theatre

The park will host three summer shows

The outdoor amphitheatre will host two plays suitable for all the family, starting with Alice's Adventures in Wonderland on Friday, 6 July.

Magical world

Children are invited to join Alice as she stumbles into the magical world of Wonderland and meets a host of eccentric characters from the Mad Hatter to the White Rabbit.

The Chapterhouse Theatre Company production, which begins at 6.30pm, costs £16 for adults, £10 for children or £46 for families (two adults and two children).

Once the summer holidays get underway, August is the perfect opportunity to head along to the park for a special afternoon performance of Pirate Pearl and the Big Blue Monster.

Summer fun

The show, which begins at 1.30pm on Wednesday 8 August, follows Pearl and her grandpa on board the good ship Mirabel, where she finds a little blue monster who soon gets greedy.

Book now to discover whether she finds her way out of trouble, with tickets costing £10 for both adults and children, or £36 for families.

To book tickets to either of the shows, call the Gala Box Office on 03000 266 600 or visit the Wharton Park pages of our website.
