The Lost World – 13th July
With our trail of over 70 life-sized prehistoric creatures, this is an ideal location for the play about dinosaurs. Join Professor Challenger and his team as they travel to an uncharted plateau in South America, become involved in tribal warfare between ape-men and indigenous humans, and encounter terrifying dinosaurs previously believed to be extinct. This play has brain, character and soul, “bringing [approximately 2 hours] of joy to the boy who’s half a man, or the man who’s half a boy”.
Standard ticket prices: £15 adult, £11.50 child, £45 family (2 adults + 2 children).

The Emperor’s New Clothes – 17th August
Bring your best clamouring for the cautionary tale of “The Emperor’s New Clothes”. When two swindlers offer the Emperor the ability to identify competence by making himclothes which only the wise can see, will he lose more than his modesty? All will be revealed in Illyria’s cheekiest ever show! Note: there will be no nudity – that must mean you’re wise.
Standard ticket prices: £14 adult, £10 child, £42 family (2 adults + 2 children).
Buy tickets here.
Bring along a low back chair, blankets, and a picnic; kick your feet up and let Illyria entertain you. Although it’s in summer, it’s also in Britain, so be prepared for all weather conditions; the showstopper is being saved for the end!
As this is an out of hours event, access to the House, Park, Gardens, Adventure Playground and Dinosaur Trail will be restricted.
