Open air theatre comes to East Devon

Two of East Devon’s best loved parks will be the venue for several outstanding shows this summer

Well regarded touring theatre companies will be performing at Connaught Gardens in Sidmouth and Manor Gardens in Exmouth. Choose from Much Ado about Nothing, Hamlet or Pride and Prejudice.

This is a joint project between East Devon District Council’s StreetScene and Countryside departments bringing new events to our outstanding parks and gardens.

East Devon District Council’s Culture Champion, Councillor John O’Leary said:

It is great that these Green Flag gardens have the facilities to offer outdoor theatre to the people of East Devon. These new and vibrant productions will add to the cultural offer of these two towns. Bring a seat, a picnic and soak up the unique atmosphere of these open air shows.
