AVAILABLE ON THE DOOR.

Gobbledigook Theatre and Frederick Warne & Co will present 'The Tales of Beatrix Potter,' a fantastic interactive theatre production for all ages. With a national reputation for creating imaginative twists on classic family stories, they'll bring a show inspired by three of Potters favourite tales - The Tale of Pie and the Patty Pan, The Tale of Samuel Whiskers and The Tale of Ginger and Pickles. Join Beatrix Potter and her characters on an adventure full of mischief and mayhem witihn Castle Howard's iconic grounds. 

'the show is delightfully nostalgic but not dated. Instead it reminds you how wonderful it is to think like a child and to never forget what that felt like' York Press on The Famous Five (2017 production by Gobbledigook). 

Beatrix Potter's animal friends will be taking up residence throughout the House as part of an indoor trail and the live characters from the show will be on hand for you to meet in the gardens before each performance. Plus, take part in an outdoor hunt around our very own 'Mr McGregor's' walled garden.

On Sunday 27th and Monday 28th May, Peter Rabbit™ will be making appearances at intervals throughout the day. Peter Rabbit™ will be visiting Castle Howard's Gardens, don't forget your camera as there will be opportunities to take photographs.
Meeting Peter Rabbit™ is included in standard admission price.
