Open Air Theatre Production of A MIDSUMMER NIGHT'S DREAM


  This summer, join young Mary Lennox on a journey of discovery as she is sent to her uncle’s house in the countryside, where mysteries and secrets lurk round every corner... As she makes new friends and encounters magical creatures, Mary has one burning question: where is the location of her uncle’s secret garden, and where has he hidden the key?
  This enchanting story, loved by children and adults alike, is presented in some of the UK and Ireland’s most beautiful outdoor venues. Relive this tale of secrecy and curiosity in what will be one of the highlights of the summer.

Where is the secret garden? Mary Lennox must find the key...
