Hoorah! We’re pleased to announce that the Prince Regent is coming to visit on Saturday 1 September. You are hereby required to attend an etiquette lesson hosted by The Association of Higher Etiquette and Manners (A.H.E.M.), who will educate you in the politesse of high society.
Join Chorley Council, Heartbreak Productions, the Bennet sisters, and a host of charming young bachelors (yes, Mr Darcy will be there. No really, yes, that Mr Darcy) for an evening of comedy, romance, and more than one come-uppance, as we learn how to behave, ahem, properly.
Champagne and cucumber sandwiches are permitted at this outdoor adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, but do ensure you know how to properly use a napkin, remember to chew with your mouths closed, and please try not to fall in love with Mr Darcy, as we believe he is very soon to be engaged. (You may also want to bring a blanket or chair to sit on and an umbrella, should the weather look inclement).
The performance starts at 5.30pm and lasts approximately two hours. Tickets are £14 for adults, £9 for children or a family ticket (2 adults and 2 children) can be purchased for £40. A booking fee does apply. The Walled Garden will be open from 4.30pm for attendees and parking at Hallgate car park (behind Astley Hall) is free.
