A lived-in historic house, Gawsworth Hall is owned, run and much loved by the Richards family. With a covered theatre auditorium, Gawsworth offers events ranging from Shakespeare to comedy and rock concerts.
Built in 1480, here lived Mary Fitton, Dark Lady of Shakespeare’s sonnets and maid of honour to Queen Elizabeth I.
Sir Simon Jenkins, former chairman of the National Trust, when reviewing Britain’s finest houses for The Times newspaper said, “The Hall is a star, a superb example of Cheshire black and white architecture.” On a tour of this historic house, you will see fine paintings, sculpture and stained glass.
But that’s not all!
Gawsworth is also home to the Garden Theatre. A covered all-seater audience auditorium. Fine comedy, music, drama and opera since 1969.
Performances take place in the Hall’s pretty Tudor courtyard.
Free entry to the Hall grounds from 2pm on the day of the performance.
See the website for details of forthcoming performances.
