Henry IV is an epic drama which brings to life the humanity, politics, battles and humour of medieval Britain.

It is a spirited adaptation focussing on the larger than life rogue Sir John Falstaff and his adventures with Prince Hal, the future King Henry V.

Rain or shine, the shows starts at 7:30pm but Leighton’s grounds open at 6pm and visitors are welcome to bring their own picnics.

Tickets cost £15, children £10 (plus £1 Booking fee) Please call 01524 734474 for details.
