Why not enjoy an open air theatre experience at Newstead Abbey in Nottingham?

Newstead Abbey & Gardens is steeped in over 800 years of history of Nottingham. It contains  a monastic Abbey from the late 12th century and was once the former home of Romantic poet Lord Byron. This summer, once again, there will be a fantastic programme of open air theatre performances in the splendid grounds surrounding the Historic House.
