Theatre in the Park returns to Astley for the summer

Theatre in the Park will return to Astley Park this summer with two performances.

The first of which will be held on Sunday, August 21, where the Quantum Theatre will bring Peter Rabbit and his naughty cousin Benjamin to Astley Hall’s Walled Garden with their enchanting new adaptation of two of Beatrix Potter’s best-loved Tales.

Organised by Chorley Council, these outdoor, amplified performances will provide fun and a musical journey for all.

Councillor Peter Wilson, Deputy Leader of Chorley Council said: “We’re excited to welcome outdoor performances to Astley Park this summer - this year’s events offer something for both families and music enthusiasts.
