Take a trip to the magical island of Neverland in the picturesque surroundings of Gunby Hall and Gardens, near Spilsby, this weekend.

An open air theatre performance of the children’s classic Peter Pan will be staged at the National Trust property on Saturday evening.

It will be presented by the Lincoln-based Chapterhouse Theatre Company in support of Great Ormond Street Hospital Children’s Charity.

Gunby visitor experience manager Astrid Gatenby said: “Join Peter and his friends for what promises to be the most magical evening of the summer with Gunby Hall as a dramatic backdrop.”

This version of the J. M. Barrie tale has been adapted by award-winning writer Laura Turner and features original music and songs.

Tickets are priced at £14 per person or £42 for a family of four and can be bought on the night, via www.seetickets.com, or in advance in the Gunby tea-room.

Visitors are encouraged to bring their own low-backed chair or rug.

The show will start at 7pm and finish before 10pm. Gates will open at 6pm. Picnics are welcome.

Built in 1700 by William Massingberd, the 42-room Gunby Hall sits in eight-acre Victorian walled gardens surrounded by a 1,500 acre estate.

It recently received a Tripadvisor Certificate of Excellence for the third consecutive year. For more information go to www.nationaltrust.org.uk/gunby-hall or call 01754 890102
