Belvoir Castle near Grantham to host a Great Gatsby event
Belvoir Castle is going for full 1920s glamour this summer with an open-air production of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s iconic, jazz-age tale ‘The Great Gatsby’.
The immersive experience comes 100 years after prohibition ended and will bring all the sparkle of the ‘Roaring 20s’ to Belvoir Castle for two nights, Thursday, July 8 and Friday, July 9.
Performed by Heartbreak Productions and the Nick Carraway Quartet, tickets for the open air theatre are on offer for adults as well as families, recommended for children aged nine and upwards.
Guests will join band leader Nick in a night of glamour by the lakeside as he recounts the story of the infamous Gatsby, indulge in food and drink and get into the swing of things with jazz music.
Belvoir Castle’s head of events Charlotte Cobley said: “We are thrilled to host Heartbreak Productions and their wonderful adaptation of this much-loved classic. What better way to enjoy a summer evening than with music performed live transporting you on a wonderful story with a delicious cocktail in hand in our stunning lakeside setting? We hope that people will get into the spirit and dress up in their finest 1920s glad rags.”
With outdoor theatre and cinema events proving more popular than ever this summer, tickets for The Great Gatsby are expected to sell out in record time.
Visitors are encouraged to take their own low-backed seating or rugs. Food and drink will be available from The Fuel Tank restaurant including a selection of hand-fired pizzas, which will be available for collection before the performance.
Tickets are £20 for adults and £10 children aged nine-16, available at www.belvoircastle.com/product/the-great-gatsby-2
