The Secret Garden"If you look the right way, you can see that the whole world is a garden."

When Mary Lennox's parents die suddenly she is sent live with her uncle at his country estate in the Yorkshire moors. 

A far distant place to India where she grew up a spoiled and self-centred child, Mary soon discovers friendship and laughter with Martha the housemaid and Ben Weatherstaff the gardener and when a friendly robin helps her discover a secret garden, life for all those at the estate will alter for the better.


Folk music weaves through this stage adaptation of Frances Hodgson Burnett's classic children's tale the whole family will enjoy.

Sarah Slator, Artistic Director, This is my Theatre, says:

"The past year has of course been difficult for us as a company but we are delighted to be one of the first companies back touring in 2021.

"We are in a really strong position as, unlike many, we have experience of producing, rehearsing and performing tours safely, within Covid-19 guidelines. 

"Our audiences and venues have been hugely supportive and it is because of them that we have been able to do so much and have avoided the need to apply for funding.

"There is always a great sense of community at our venues, but this past year that feeling has been even more so - it has been wonderful!
