the world’s best-known love story at some of the most beautiful and historic landmarks in the UK.
This romantic epic will be getting the full Three Inch Fools treatment: live music-making, deft physicality and vibrant story-telling. Expect fast-paced drama, plenty of musical instruments and many a quick costume
change along the way!

Helmsley Walled Garden supports Helmsley Arts Centre as a free venue for their outdoor performances. A small charity supporting our community’s health and well-being through gardening, Helmsley Walled Garden is asking theatre attendees if they might be able to donate to our Orchid House Appeal. Anything you can give to this project would be very much appreciated.
