Open air theatre - Robin Hood by the Three Inch Fools

National Trust Nymans

Staplefield Lane, Handcross, West Sussex

4th July 2021, 19:00 - 21:30

Join us this summer as open- air theatre returns to Nymans. With the romantic ruins as a backdrop, roll out your rug, unpack your picnic and prepare to sit back and enjoy the performance. The Three Inch Fools are known for their fast-paced and musically driven approach to theatre. Beneath the Major Oak, this inept troupe of players gather to tell the story of Britain’s best-known folktale. The only problem is: no one can quite remember the story! As each actor battles to tell their own version of the legendary tale, our hapless hero Robin must pull out even more tricks to bring his band of merry misfits together with the scene set for an adventure filled with misfired arrows, mistaken identity and mismanaged robberies. Can Robin pull his gang together in time to save his country, and live up to his name?

National Trust Nymans

Staplefield Lane, Handcross, West Sussex

3rd September 2021, 19:00 - 21:00

Join us this summer as open- air theatre returns to Nymans. With the romantic ruins as a backdrop, roll out your rug, unpack your picnic and prepare to sit back and enjoy the performance. Slapstick Picnic present a fantastically wild(e) new production, ripping up the recipe book and celebrating silliness. Prepare to witness the impossible - the entirety of Oscar Wilde’s classic play of manners, affairs and handbags being performed by just two rather dashing entertainers. This is an outdoor production, so please bring your own chair or blanket to sit on, a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather! Doors will open at 6pm, with the performance beginning at 7pm.
