On the Sundial Lawn against the backdrop of the house Thursday 18 – Saturday 27 July 7.30pm each evening and 2.30pm on Saturday (grounds open early for picnics).

Set in the Regency Era with stunning costumes – you will be glad you came!!
This is an open air production. Patrons are welcome to picnic in the beautiful grounds of Townhill Park House (the home of The Gregg School).
