Open Air Theatre Productions

Much Ado About Murder

Tuesday 14th June at 7:30pm

Don your detective cap and join Heartbreak Productions for some uper silly outdoor theatre this summer. Our original murder mystery will set five suspects under the spotlight, and we will depend on the audience to find answers. Who was lurking in the corridor carrying a candlestick? When did the third gunshot go off - before or after the very silly song? And probably most importantly, why didn't you pack a larger picnic?

answers to these and other equally important questions will only be uncovered as we make Much Ado About Murder (an original murder mystery by Heartbreak Productions, performed, as are all our shows, out of doors, so check the weather, dress appropriately, and bring a picnic).

Tickets are priced at £14 for adults and £7 for children. Tickets can be bought in advance through the Heartbreak website or by cash or card on the night.

Jane Eyre

Friday 12th August at 7:30pm

Heartbreak is delighted to present this original outdoor theatre adaption of Charlotte Bronte's classic, Jane Eyre. Using the backdrop of a carnival, we follow our favourite Victorian heroine through her many ordeals. Watch her escape from her aunt's house, her school, the fire, the moors, and finally find safety with her true love, Mr Rochester.

So step right up, ladies and gents, to Heartbreak Productions' Carnival Spectacular - complete with astouding acrobats, jaw-dropping jugglers. And don't forget our very special guest - the death-defying escape artist Jane Eyre. Watch her wriggle out of five different tight corners, including everyone's greatest fear - fire! Harrowing at times and heart-warming at others, this romantic tale is best enjoyed with a picnic.

Tickets are priced at £14 for adults and £7 for children. Tickets can be bought in advance through the Heartbreak website or by cash or card on the night.

Antiques Fairs

We welcome Jules and Andy from Antiques in Tents biannually for their well supported antiques fairs. All set in the now familiar setting of a large marquee designed to hold up to 50 exhibits with more stalls inside the main period rooms inside the house. Dealers from across the UK come and exhibit and never disappoint on quality and diversity of stock.

We have a large marquee on the old tennis courts; stalls scattered in the gardens, and a pop up cafe and the lazy butler's bar will be well stocked for the event.

The fair runs from 12 noon to 5pm on Friday 13th May
and from 10am to 4pm on Saturday 14th May

Admission £5 cash or card payment.

I would like to thank you for the tremendous time we had at the murder mystery party night. The food, entertainment and hospitality were top class!

We are proud to be one of the beacon lighting locations marking the Queen's Diamond Jubilee. We are hosting this event alongside Eardisland Parish Council to kick start the celebrations that will be happening throughout the bank holiday weekend. The Jubilee Beacons will provide an opportunity for communities and people throughout the United Kingdom, Channel Islands, Isle of Man, UK Overseas Territories and the Commonwealth, to come together to celebrate The Queen's 70 years of service.
