Excellent facilities include an on site car park, a popular picnic area on the lawn, in the hall, a theatre bar adjacent to a spacious orangery, and a 90 seat restaurant enjoyed by theatre goers every summer.

Take your seat protected from summer showers beneath the permanent canopy and see a stage like no other....
