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.

All events have covid safety measures in place. Plan your visit to Newstead Abbey here. Car parking charges apply.

❗️  Please bring rugs or low-back seating. The event will go ahead if it’s raining but we always hope for a sunny weekend.
