A breathless romp through the centuries is promised when open air theatre returns to Belton House this month.

The acclaimed Pantaloons Theatre Company will present ‘The History of Britain’ like you’ve never quite seen it before on Friday, July 25.

History’s best known characters are presented with some hilarity while mud, blood and stiff upper lips feature throughout an inventive open air show. Harold II and William the Conqueror don’t see eye to eye, Henry 
VIII decides that five marriages are just not enough and Queen Victoria certainly isn’t amused.

Visitor Services Manager Mary Kindred said: “We’re delighted to welcome the Pantaloons back to Belton for the third year because our audiences love them.

“Their unique blend of wit, irrepressible humour, puppetry and audience participation make them a winning combination. This is definitely an evening not to be missed!”

Packed with songs, sketches and humour, the show is suitable for all ages. The performance starts at 7pm with gates open for picnics and a Belton barbeque from 5.30pm.

Advance tickets for adults cost £12 and children £8. Family tickets are £38.50. On the day adult tickets are £13.50, children £9, and family ticekts are £45. Under 5s get in free. For tickets call 01476 566116 or e-mail
