Christmas theatre at Holkham Hall in north Norfolk

The Emperor’s New Clothes

Wednesday 9th August, 6.15pm

Join Illyria, an equity outdoor touring guidelines compliant company, in the Walled Garden for their cheekiest show ever! Illyria’s fun adaptation of Hans Christian Andersen’s much loved classic, follows the fortunes of the Emperor, who is a lovely man but is surrounded by fools. What keeps him sane is the monthly Grand Parade at which he wears his newest outfit. But how much is the Emperor willing to sacrifice when two tricksters offer to make him a suit of clothes which can only be seen by the wise? All, as they say, will be revealed….

Tickets: Adult £14, Child £10, Family (2 adults and 2 children) £43. To book telephone Holkham Ticket Office on 01328 713111 or click on the button below to book online.
