Join us on Wednesday, July 10th, 2024, as we invite you to experience the enchanting performance of Shakespeare’s “Hamlet” by The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, set amidst the splendour of our magnificent gardens. This renowned touring theatre company brings to life the timeless classic in its original form – performed in the open air, by an all-male cast with authentic Elizabethan costumes, music and dance. Tickets for this eagerly awaited event sell out quickly every year, so be sure to book early to ensure you don’t miss out.
Guests are encouraged to bring along a chair and a picnic to enjoy a delightful summer evening while immersing themselves in this authentic production of “Hamlet.” The Lord Chamberlain’s Men have been captivating audiences both nationally and internationally since 2004, marking their 20th anniversary in the realm of theatrical excellence!
As Hamlet returns home from university to attend his father, the King of Denmark’s funeral, he finds himself thrust into a tumultuous situation with the remarriage of his mother to his uncle, who now assumes the throne. The encounter with the ghost of his deceased father sets Hamlet on a path of vengeance, as he learns of his father’s murder at the hands of his uncle. Fueled by grief and existential turmoil, Hamlet grapples with his inner demons, challenging not only those around him but also the very fabric of reality itself.
The gates to the Knowsley Estate will open at 6:00 pm, with the performance commencing promptly at 7:00 pm.
During the evening, guests will have the opportunity to purchase a selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages from our outdoor bar. Join us for an unforgettable evening of theatrical splendour under the stars.
