Our Outdoor Theatre Season returns!
Wed 3 Jun 2015
You have read our previous news story about the redevelopment of Markeaton Park and we'd like to let you know a bit more about our Outdoor Theatre Season that will take place within the new Craft Village!
Moving on to the following week from Tue 28 - Thu 30 Jul we are delighted to host Derby favourites Oddsocks, who will be throwing a Shakespearian party night! Twelfth Night will be a madcap musical treat with Shakespeare's love stories intertwined with well-known British Chart hits to keep the blood pumping and the mood merry.
Then from Tue 4 - Sun 9 Aug we're giving you the opportunity to get the kids involved in some workshops as the Babbling Vagabonds (the theatre company who brought you the Guildhall Theatre Christmas shows; The Christmas Chocolate Shop and Naughty Meg and the Christmas Elves) will be putting on a shadow and a story workshop - both are suitable for children old enough to use scissors.
As well as the workshops, they will also be putting on Rumple-Trumpy-Bum & Other Cheeky Chappies which will feature three terrific tales: a greedy wolf and a clever kid, a humble hedgehog and a horrid hare, and a selfish King, a poor Miller’s daughter, and a trickster who can spin straw into gold.
Phew! There's so much to choose from!
*Limited seating available, customers may bring their own seats.
*Catering & licensed bar available onsite.
*Only food & drink purchased in the walled Craft Village may be consumed in this area.
