This summer, the theatre is heading back to Emmetts Garden with two new outdoor theatre shows! Join us in the beautiful surroundings of our wildflower meadow, the views over Kent forming part of the scenery, for two open-air performances. See Shakespeare’s Macbeth performed by The Lord Chamberlain’s Men and the family favourite, The Jungle Book from Immersion Theatre.

Immersion Theatre with Rudyard Kipling’s ‘The Jungle Book’

Tuesday 10 August; open for picnics at 3.30pm and the performance starts at 4pm.

£12 for adults, £7 for children aged 4-16 (under 3’s go free) and family tickets starting at £26. Booking fee applies.

On a summer’s afternoon watch the Immersion Theatre Company in the classic story of Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book. Join Mowgli and his friends on this family musical, with bags of comedy, audience participation, and a brand-new score written specifically for this show! Funny, exciting and wildly entertaining, this larger-than-life musical will have you howling with laughter; the perfect treat for the whole family.

The Lord Chamberlain’s Men in Shakespeare’s ‘Macbeth’

Thursday 12 August; gates open at 6pm for picnics and the performance starts at 7pm.

£16 for adults, £10 for children aged 8-16 (event not recommended for under 8s). Booking fee applies.

We’re excited to announce that The Lord Chamberlain’s Men are returning to Emmetts Garden to perform their thrilling and powerful production of Shakespeare’s Macbeth: a play of supernatural magic, vaulting ambition and an examination of the dreadful consequences of the insatiable lust for power. With Shakespeare’s most chilling power couple and truly stirring poetry, this stunning play will keep you gripped.

What to bring

You are welcome to arrive at the earlier listed time for picnics and to set up chairs ready for the performance. If you arrive earlier to visit the garden, you will need to pay for admission (National Trust members get in for free).

To enjoy our theatre productions in comfort please bring along either a picnic blanket or chairs to sit on. Please bring along your booking confirmation to show on arrival (internet signal can be inconsistent, so we recommend downloading beforehand just in case).

The performance is fully outdoors so please dress and pack for the weather on the day. That will hopefully mean sun-cream, hats and glasses, but the show will go on even if it rains, so you may want to pack waterproof coats as well.

Barbecues are not permitted within Emmetts Garden.
