An afternoon or evening of outdoor frolics and
open air theatre.
Every year, during open-air theatre season, Manor Farm in Corsley opens its gates for everyone to enjoy entertainment in the wonderful grounds of this historic Elizabethan Manor, in the shape of outdoor theatre by a professional equity registered open-air touring theatre. This year is different, the normal supper, waited by surfs and wenches will NOT be available.
The bar and coffee, in fact all sales, will not be happening this year to protect the health and safety of everyone!
A family event with all proceeds donated to local charities and good causes.
Historic Manor Farm, built in 1563, was regularly visited by Sir Walter Raleigh and was home to Sir John Thynne of Longleat.
The house and its grounds play host to a delightful evening held every year during the summer of an open air theatre.
Nestled in the gardens overlooking meadows and ancient copses, the play is set on a terraced lawn against a backdrop of stunning views. This will be the thirteenth year that Manor Farm, Corsley has hosted the event.
Award winning theatre company Illyria were the first and only one to add Opera, in 2011, to it's regular season, raising the bar for major UK open-air touring theatre companies.
