Located within the grounds of the Kilworth House Hotel, the theatre first opened its doors to the public in 2007.

Feeling peckish? Before the show you can treat yourself to some fi ne dining at the Kilworth House Hotel or go al fresco by bringing your own picnic to feast upon, whilst relaxing in the designated picnic areas. Theatregoers can also visit the theatre bar prior to or following the performance, where you can indulge in something sweet from chocolate to ice cream or treat yourself to a sweet tipple.

An array of soft and hot drinks will be on offer before and after an evening full of entertainment. Why head home after a magical evening when you can stay the night at the charming hotel? The grade II listed building is composed of stunning Victorian architecture and features a star-listed Orangery, a scenic view of the enchanting woodland, and luxurious period rooms offering guests traditional and modern comforts.

This summer, Kilworth House Theatre will be showcasing Singin’ In The Rain from the 3rd of June to the 19th of July, and Legally Blonde from the 20th of August to the 20th of September.
