PEEL Heritage brings the classic novel ‘Black Beauty’ to life this summer at Castle Howard in a stylish and contemporary open-air theatre production.
As told through the eyes of the stallion, the story follows Black Beauty’s life as a workhorse in the 19th century – from his carefree days on a country farm to a more gruelling existence pulling cabs in London, and his dark days down the mine.
The first 20 minutes of the production will be performed in promenade, providing a perfect setting to enjoy the story. There will also be the opportunity to meet a ‘real life’ Black Beauty.
Bring a picnic and be entertained on a summer evening.
Performance starts at 7.30pm
Meet a reallife Black Beauty and learn about the role of horses in the 19th Century at our pre-theatre workshop (no extra charge) in the Boar Garden at 6.30pm
‘Black Beauty’ is suitable for ages 6+
The production runs for 2 hours, with a 15-20 minute interval.
