Explore the fascinating world of the Victorian judges at this award-winning historic house.

The Owl, The Pussycat & Edward Lear

 

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED

We are excited to be welcoming back the acclaimed Don't Go Into The Cellar theatre company and this time, for some true springtime frivolity!  Enjoy an audience with Mr Edward Lear, King of the Nonsense Rhyme and Loopy Limerick! Allow him to entertain you with tall tales concerning his life and times, the people, flora and fauna he encountered along the way, and his own inimitable philosophy of life.
Oh, and a certain owl and a particular pussycat are both guaranteed!

Jonathan Goodwin writes and performs in a show directed by himself and Gary Archer.
