Christchurch Mansion Lawn



Gates open 6pm

Open Air Theatre in association with Kerseys Solicitors: Sherlock Holmes 

How can one show with just four actors possibly contain so much action and adventure? Elementary, my dear! The critically-acclaimed Pantaloons Theatre Company put dynamic detective duo Holmes and Watson through their paces as they tackle their most fiendish case yet in this delightfully inventive and hilarious show for all ages featuring live music, audience interaction and more mystery than you can shake a magnifying glass at. Stick that in your pipe and smoke it!

“A production of ingenuity, verve and wit… hilarious! * * * * *” (Oxford Mail)

The fantastic Pantaloons theatre company return to the Mansion Lawn in Christchurch Park, bringing their own unique flair to theatre’s greatest classics.

Make yourself comfortable with your own blankets and chairs – you can also bring your own picnic.
