Visit Wonderland via Kirby Hall for children's classic

Alice's Adventures in Wonderland
Alice's Adventures in Wonderland

Take a trip down not the rabbit hole but to Kirby Hall as a children’s favourite will be performed in the grounds of the stately home later this week.

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland will be presented by the Chapterhouse Theatre Company and based on the characters and story of the classic Lewis Carroll novel.

The company is delighted to be bringing Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland to Kirby Hall, a beautiful Elizabethan house that was once owned by Sir Christopher Hatton, Lord Chancellor to Elizabeth I.

This summer the grounds will become the home of a different Queen altogether – the quick-tempered and terrifying Queen of Hearts...

Join Alice as she stumbles into the magical world of Wonderland and meet a whole host of colourful characters.

From the unforgettable White Rabbit and the madcap Mad Hatter to the terrifying Queen of Hearts, Alice’s journey couldn’t be filled with more adventure.

Presented in beautiful Victorian costume and alive with song, dance and original music, this is a production to delight the entire family in some of the UK and Ireland’s most stunning open-air theatre venues.

Chapterhouse Theatre Company is now in its 19th year of touring open-air theatre to stunning country houses, castles and heritage sites across the UK and Ireland.
