I spent a very happy and comfortable week at Burrswood and felt very spoiled, and very well cared for.

Open Air Theatre - A Comedy of Errors
Saturday 29th July 
Picnics 5pm Performance 7pm

Comedy of Errors.jpgThe quintessential experience of an English summer. Bring your picnic and a rug or chair, and enjoy an outdoor performance of Shakespeare’s comical play by renowned Illyria Theatre Company in the beautiful surroundings of Burrswood’s garden. “The most delicious theatrical experience you could ever wish for” Venue Magazine

The Comedy of Errors, one of Shakespeare's earliest plays (possibly even the first), is perfect fodder for the Illyria treatment. It's pure comedy: there's slapstick and word-play; there's confusion and coincidence, mistaken identity, a nagging wife, a husband who likes a bit on the side, browbeaten servants, a mad doctor/priest/exorcist, and all sorts of improbability. 

Burrswood Garden. Gardens open for picnics 5pm. Performance 7pm Tickets: £18 Adult £10 Child £50 Family ticket (2 adults and up to 3 children)

Recommended for adults and children aged 5+
Running time: 2 hours including 20 minute interval

Why not order a picnic box containing a delicious freshly made roll, crisps, drink and a piece of cake - all for £6.50.
Sandwich options are honey roasted ham, lettuce and chutney or brie and grape. Please mention when booking your tickets.

NB The performance will go ahead whatever the weather!
