July 1 @ 6:30 pm - July 2 @ 8:00 pm

Event Navigation

When Tom is exiled to his aunt and uncle’s dreary flat while his brother recovers from measles, he fears that his holidays are doomed. But the vast old house hides enchanting and wondrous secrets, and the grandfather clock is striking 13…

Frankly Speaking Productions presents Tom’s Midnight Garden, a brand new ballet production adapted from Philippa Pearce’s classic novel – widely acknowledged to be one of the greatest works of children’s literature ever written.

Join us this summer outdoors amongst towering trees and flower beds in full bloom, for the story of a garden that only exists on the thirteenth chime, and the powerful, enduring friendship that two children find there.

Performance running time: 40 minutes (with a photo opportunity for children at the end!)

This is an open air production, so please come prepared for the weather. Picnics encouraged!

All performances are fully COVID-secure. Please do not attend if you have any symptoms of coronavirus; have tested positive for coronavirus; are in a household or support bubble with someone who has symptoms of or has tested positive for coronavirus; or have been advised to self-isolate by NHS Test and Trace or the NHS COVID-19 app, or following entry to the UK from a country with a high coronavirus risk. If you cannot attend due to any of the above, then please get in touch and we will try to re-sell your ticket.

In the event that the event is cancelled or postponed due to COVID-19, you will be offered the opportunity to exchange your ticket for an alternative performance where possible. As an alternative, you will also be offered a full refund (excl. booking fees).
