In P T Barnum’s words: ‘The noblest art is that of making others happy.’ Certainly, we aim to keep you smiling by bringing the greatest shows to all our stages. World-class music and comedy from stars of the stage and screen, tribute acts, festivals, contemporary circus, you’ll find them all right here.

Every night, the music, theatre, dance and comedy are always live. Tribute acts reflect icons of our time, perhaps Elton, ABBA, Phil Collins or Status Quo. Star Breaks showcase Jane McDonald and Cannon Ball, and festivals celebrate Motown and the sounds of the 60s.
Nestled in Berkshire farmland, with huge yew hedges keeping the estate private, there’s plenty to discover. Bluebells and snowdrops in the spring, a David Austin rose garden, tennis courts, bowls and a trout stream. There’s even a Roman mosaic in the grounds.
The Evesham Restaurant is the place for the late and lively crowd. After dinner, the spotlight turns to the stage as visiting artists, contemporary circus performers and bands perform headline sets. Or in the bar, wine and gin-tasting sessions could kick off your evening in style.
You couldn’t ask for a more peaceful setting with views over the Clwydian Range, a European Area of Outstanding Beauty. On the doorstep there’s 260 acres of Victorian parkland to enjoy, plus croquet in the walled garden and a daily Walk A Mile with Warner through woodlands.
The silk damask walls of The Blue Grill provide an exquisite backdrop to an evening of fine dining. Beautifully-presented dishes major on fresh, vibrant flavours: trio of salmon and pan-seared scallops, lamb rump and elderflower sorbet, for example. Sharing boards offer a little bit of everything.
