An unfortunate case of mishearing initiates the plot for The Pirates of Penzance, resulting in a dramatic change of direction for Frederic who sets course to become a pirate rather than a ‘pilot’!

The Great Gatsby (Open-air)

Smallhythe, Tenterden, TN30 7NG
Performance by Heartbreak Productions (Group)
19:00 - 21:20
Jun 2020

Join Heartbreak Productions and the Nick Carraway quartet for an evening of jazz, prohibition style. Nick is not only the band leader but a top-notch storyteller, and when he’s in the mood, he can take you back to the summer of 1922 when he lived next door to none other than the infamous Jay Gatsby.

Nick was working as a bond salesman in New York the summer he met the mysterious party-throwing millionaire. Before long, Nick finds out that Gatsby and his cousin Daisy (who conveniently lives nearby) used to be an item. Gatsby is still in love with Daisy, but Daisy is now married to the pretentious and unfaithful Tom. 

So get your glad rags on, work up your best Charleston, and get your cocktail glass at the ready! Served up with a twist of iconic Heartbreak style, this outdoor adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby is the perfect way to mark 100 years since prohibition. Dress for the weather, bring a chair or blanket to sit on, and don’t forget the picnic and prosecco (now that prohibition has been lifted!).

Picnics welcome in the garden from 6pm.

Adult: £16.00 | Child: £10.00

Sir Paul Getty spent 25 years assembling one of the finest private collections of books and manuscripts in the world. When he moved to Wormsley, just 15 minute drive from Belmond Le Manoir, he commissioned the building of the castellated Library, as an extension of the main house. The growing collection features the first edition of Caxton’s printing of The Canterbury Tales, Anne Boleyn’s Psalter and the first folio of Shakespeare’s “Comedies, Histories and Tragedies”. Other highlights include manuscripts dating from the 12th to the 15th Century, important Bibles and extraordinary modern bindings. We are invited to a rare viewing of this renowned collection with a curated tour of this historic location. We will also explore the enchanting walled gardens which date back to the mid 1700s. We will then return to Belmond Le Manoir where we will sip Champagne as the sun goes down and enjoy a feast of summer dishes for dinner. INCLUDES: Tea, coffee and lemon cake, transfer to Wormsley Estate and exclusive viewing of the Getty family private collection, hosted tour of the walled garden, champagne reception, 4-course dinner with sommelier paired wines, coffee and petits fours.

April 2020 will see an exciting new addition at Marwell Zoo… the world exclusive toy brick event: SUPERSIZED! The brand-new immersive adventure has been created with more than two million toy bricks and will include some of the deadliest and most deceptive creatures in the world, all blown up to enormous proportions. Follow the trail to discover more about each species and break the myth of these often-misunderstood creatures. The larger than life brick adventure features up to 40 astonishing models of real-life creatures with an explosion of colour and size. From sneaky predators such as the fearless honey badger and venomous blue-ringed octopus, to the aptly named assassin bug, all creatures have been chosen for their colourful appearance in nature, unusual natural abilities and because they can be magnified to an eye-popping size. Guests will also be able to play games, build their own models and create toy brick graffiti. The creative geniuses at BRICKLIVE say it will take their team of professional builders more than 10,000 hours to create the exclusive event. The event will be on display at the zoo from 4 April to 3 September 2020. SUPERSIZED! will be included with general admission. Ticket prices cost from £18 per child (3-16 years) and £22 per adult, which include an optional donation.
