The Secret Garden

Frances Hodgson Burnett

“If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden.”


When Mary Lennox’s parents die suddenly she is sent live with her uncle at his country
estate in the Yorkshire moors. A far distant place to India where she grew up a spoiled and self-centred child, Mary soon discovers friendship and laughter with Martha the housemaid and Ben Weatherstaff the gardener and when a friendly robin helps her discover a secret garden, life for all those at the estate will alter for the better.
Folk music weaves through this stage adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett’s classic children’s tale the whole family will love

For all shows:

Of course things are a little different due to government guidelines on Covid-19. Please read the information below so that you know what to expect at one of our shows and if you have any questions please don't hesitate to contact us.  We will update this page with information as it becomes available so please check back here at any time though we'll of course be in touch to let you know if things change

The Secret Garden will run without an interval at approximately 80 minutes to limit movement around venues.

Social distancing will operate at 1m+ in all venues. Capacities at all venues will be reduced to allow for safe distancing.

Hand sanitiser will be available for use at the entrance to all venues

You don't need to print/show tickets, simply give the name the booking was made under at the door and you will be directed by our team

All tickets purchased under a single booking will be considered 1 household/"bubble" so will be seated together without social distancing measures.

Children under 2 years are considered "Babes in arms" and will not require a ticket. They are considered part of your "6" however so please take this into consideration when booking tickets.

Those with a disability requiring a carer to attend performances please contact us with details. Whilst carers will not require a ticket they will still be considered part of your "bubble" so please take this into consideration when booking tickets.

We ask our audience to wear a face covering whilst moving around venues. This may be a mask or visor. These may be removed once seated.

All venues will be systematically filled and emptied by our team. We ask that all audience follow directions given to make this as easy a process as possible. For venues operating one-way systems there will be signage to direct you. 

Some venues will have facilities but the majority are without. For venues with toilets please be aware that access may be limited to ensure social distancing can be maintained. 

Please note that some of our venues are historic buildings so if you have any access requirements please contact us.

Please dress warmly as many of our venues are without heating. We will also be cleaning and ventilating all venues so this may well mean that they are chillier than usual!

Open-air performances will perform in all but the very worst weather. You will be contacted by our team if weather prevents a performance from happening

We have also updated our refund policy so if you are feeling unwell on the day of the performance, whilst we wish you well we'd rather you stayed away! Visit our T&C's page for details on how you can either get a hassle free ticket swap or refund. 

If changes to government guidelines mean the event is cancelled your tickets will be refunded.

Test and Trace-if we are alerted to a case of Covid-19 at any of our events customer details, provided at booking, will be used by the NHS to contact all audience members following government guidance on Test and Trace. If you do not want your details to be used in this manner please let us know here

Our team will be at all venues to assist audiences and help keep everyone safe so you can be confident in attending!
