The fantastic Pantaloons theatre company return to the Mansion Lawn in Christchurch Park, bringing their own unique flair to theatre’s greatest classics. This year, the Pantaloons will be performing Robin Hood.

Join utter legends Robin, Marian and the Merry Men in Sherwood Forest for a hilariously adventurous take on the timeless tales of everyone’s favourite archer.

Pernicious Prince John and the shifty Sheriff of Nottingham have hatched a plan to put a stop to Robin Hood’s charitable crime spree once and for all. Can they outwit the outlaw? Or will Robin hit the target once again?

Find out in the critically-acclaimed Pantaloons’ innovative take on the myth featuring live music and audience interaction.

Prepare to have your blocks busted, your rips roared and your swashes well-and-truly buckled!

 Tickets are available to book now and include savings for concessions and a discounted family ticket!

Make yourself comfortable with your own blankets and chairs and bring a picnic to enjoy the show dinner-theatre style as you will not be able to buy food and drink at this event. Enjoy a bottle with your friends, but please remember to make use of the appropriate recycling bins that will be made available. Please note chairs and blankets will not be provided.

The performance will take place no matter the weather conditions so please come prepared for all weathers as this is an open air event. As they say, the show must go on!

However, if we deem the weather to be too dangerous beforehand, we will make an announcement on social media asking you not to attend for your own safety. Refunds will only be issued if we cancel the event. 

The performance will take place on the Mansion Lawn which is surrounded by a raised curb. Accessibility ramps will be available on request. The performance seated area is on grass.

There is no on-site parking available. Ipswich Borough Council offer a number of car parks throughout the town centre. For more information click here.
