The garden theatre began in 1969, with a Shakespeare performance in the Tilting Ground. In the decades since, the summer performances have become a huge part of the Gawsworth calendar, moving to the Hall’s sunken lawn, with the beautiful backdrop of the Tudor courtyard and rose garden.
We are one of the very few, fully covered, yet outdoor theatre venues in Britain. Previous acts to perform at the garden theatre include:
Russell Watson, The Hollies, Jimmy Carr, KT Tunstall, Alfie Boe, Joan Armatrading, John Bishop, Kate Rusby, Michael Portillo, The Proclaimers, Bellowhead, the D’Oyly Carte, Hayley Westenra, Ronnie Scott’s, Acker Bilk, Humphrey Lyttelton, Tony Benn, Grimethorpe Colliery Band, Henning Wehn and many more.
