Theatre fun in the outdoors at Trust venues

The grounds of the National Trust’s Kedleston Hall and Sudbury Hall & Museum of Childhood will become a stage this week when a pair of open air performances take place.

The performances kick off Saturday, August 10, at Kedleston Hall, with Dracula.

A potent and passion-filled drama, you will see the malicious and seductive Dracula wreak havoc on innocence and purity. Malevolent thrills, erotic chills and spine tingling fear abound in this new adaptation of the Bram Stoker classic.

Then, on Tuesday August 13, visitors can see the Wind In The Willows at Sudbury Hall, and join Badger, Ratty, Mole and Toad for a perfect adventure, where what starts as a search for the best picnic spot rapidly turns into the most hilarious of escapades.

Jonathan Turley, events and marketing manager at Kedleston Hall said: “Our outdoor theatre events are always popular and the grounds are the perfect place to enjoy a summer evening and some fantastic entertainment with friends or family. There is always a wonderful atmosphere and it’s lovely to see so many people sat enjoying great entertainment and the cast never fail to encapsulate the essence of the stories.”
