Shakespeare returns to Newby

We are delighted to announce that The The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, the UK’s premier all male theatre company, invite you to join them this summer for Shakespeare’s spellbinding masterpiece, The Tempest.

“My spirits, as in a dream, are all bound up.”

12 years ago, Prospero, Duke of Milan, usurped and exiled by his brother washes up on a distant and mystical island with his baby daughter, Miranda. A place where his magical powers reign supreme and the only inhabitants of the island, the sprite Ariel and brutish Caliban, answer his every command. In this strange new kingdom, he is left to brood.

“Be not afeared; the isle is full of noises, Sounds, and sweet airs, that give delight and hurt not.”

Now his enemies, his brother Antonio, who supplanted him as Duke, and Alonso, King of Naples, whilst sailing home are blown, by fortune, off course towards him. Prospero raises a tempestuous storm that shipwrecks them. Scattered across the island the boat’s passengers are tested and tormented as they are magically drawn towards their fate. Left to plot his revenge for years Prospero finally has the chance to exact it. But will he?

This play of soaring poetry, high comedy and tender love,Shakespeare’s late, great gem, examines the power of true love, our capacity for vengeance and what it takes to forgive.
“We are such stuff as dreams are made on”
Bring a chair and a picnic, and spend a glorious summer’s evening watching this enchanting, fast-paced production of one of Shakespeare’s finest plays. Performed in the open air, by an all male cast with Elizabethan costumes, music and dance. This is undoubtedly one of the hottest tickets of the summer; book early to avoid missing out!
Authenticity | Excellence | Magic

Newby Hall, the family home of Mr & Mrs Richard Compton, is one of England's finest houses, an exceptional example of 18th century interior decoration.

Built in the 1690s in the style of Sir Christopher Wren the house was later enlarged and adapted by John Carr and subsequently Robert Adam. The superb contents of the house, collected by Weddell, ancestor of the Compton family, on the Grand Tour include a rare set of Gobelin Tapestries, a gallery of classical statuary and some of Chippendale's finest furniture.

Visitors to Newby Hall can enjoy the 25 acres of award winning gardens full of rare and beautiful plants.

The famous double herbaceous borders are flanked by numerous compartmented gardens such as the rose and autumn gardens and the water garden.

Newby Hall holds the National Collection of cornus. Add to this a wonderful children’s adventure garden with a moated fort and water play features; a miniature railway to ride, a woodland discovery walk and you have a perfect day out for all ages.
