Open-air theatre returns to Belsay Hall, Castle and Gardens this weekend.

Once again Chapterhouse Theatre Company will be performing a classic in the grounds of the English Heritage attraction.

On Saturday evening the audience will be treated to its production of Sherlock Holmes.

Deep in the beautiful Northumbrian countryside a terrifying mystery and a legendary nemesis await the arrival of the world’s greatest detective.

When the wife of Doctor Watson suddenly disappears, a desperate quest to find her begins.

Sherlock Holmes comes face to face with his greatest fear at the hands of his mortal enemy in this stunning new tale of romance and suspense.

Chapterhouse Theatre Company is now in its 19th year of touring open-air theatre to stunning country houses, castles and heritage sites across the UK and Ireland.

From the first year of performances at 30 venues with Romeo and Juliet in 2000, Chapterhouse now visits more than 180 venues every year, and has become a greatly anticipated addition to thousands of theatre-goers’ calendars.

Richard Main, Artistic Director and Producer, said: “We are thrilled to be joining our audiences at beautiful venues for summer open-air theatre in 2018.

“We have lots of new and exciting shows.

“I am thrilled to be working with directors Antony Law and Grace Constance-Main, as well as our exceptional stage adaptor, Laura Turner.
