Mr Brown's Directions

Mr Brown's Directions

Passion, entanglement and a superstar gardener...

It's 1769 and William Constable Esq of Burton Constable Hall has big ideas. Not content with refashioning his house and tearing down the stables, the old park now HAS to go.

Aided, abetted - and sometimes blocked - by his lively sister Winifred and faithful steward John Raines, William is determined to transform his parkland into the height of 18th century fashion. But where is the elusive Mr 'Capability' Brown? And will he ever agree to come to Holderness?

Let yourselves be transported to a dramatic decade in Burton Constable's history, a time of Rousseau, curiosities, love and loss. Inspired by original archive material with live music and sumptuous costumes, this is a unique opportunity to see the history of one of the most beautiful jewels in the East Riding crown intimately and unforgettably brought to life.

There will only be four performances of Mr Brown's Directions with limited audiences. Click to be directed straight to the booking page.
