Your Visit

Welcoming you 

We want to make sure your night out is fun and relaxing, so to help here are some of the things we often get asked:

What to wear
There’s no dress code, so if you fancy wearing that special outfit that you want an excuse to bring out, do it, or you feel like chilling in your jeans and trainers do that.

What time should I arrive?
As there's only a small foyer we open the doors 30 minutes before the start of the show.  If it’s a nice day, come earlier and admire the garden area.  If it’s not so nice, we'll always try to open as early as possible, but we have to wait for the performers to finish their last minute preparations before we can do that.

Is there a break?
Mostly shows start at 2:30pm or 7:30pm and have two parts. There's usually a 15 to 20 minute interval half way through.  Most performances including the interval are around two to two and a half hours long.
