Forget about the tiny tubs of expensive ice cream you buy at the theatre during the interval; it is far more enjoyable to see a play in the open air with a picnic basket by your side.

The National Trust's Grey Court is a sixteenth century mansion with tranquil gardens, and is a beautiful location to watch three classic theatre productions.

Tickets are £15-£18 for adults and £9 for children, which can be booked by calling 0844 249 1895. This summer you'll have the choice between the delights of Shakespeare, the antics of Gilbert & Sullivan, or the fantastical world of Dick King Smith.

As You Like It
22nd June, 7.30pm-10pm, £16

In one of the oldest cross-dressing comedies, follow Rosalind as she flees from her usurping uncle into Arden Forest. Amongst the struggles of injustice and bids for power, there is a story of love. The triangle (or polygon to me more accurate) brings about many humorous situations.

The Mikado
20th July, 7.30pm-10pm, £18

Flirting is illegal in Titipu, and the punishment is death. However, Lord High Executioner Ko-Ko has no inclination to execute himself, so he needs to find someone else to take his place. Unfortunately that someone just happens to be the Japanese Emperor's son.

Babe The Shee-Pig
2nd August, 6.30pm-8.30pm, £15

One to see with the kids. Babe is a piglet, and when piglets grow up, they get taken to market to make lovely roast dinners. The only hope Babe has to save his life is to prove to Farmer Hoggett that he can be good for something other than the dinner table. How about herding sheep?
