Entrance Price free Per person

The Elizabethan Evening is Going Overboard this year with two outdoor performances of the Nationally acclaimed Illyria Theatre Company’s production of HMS Pinafore! At the historical Manor Farm Corsley BA12 7QE Sunday 1st August.

Bring a picnic and come and join us on board the warship HMS Pinafore, the opera cheerfully mocks such Great British institutions as Class, Patriotism and the Royal Navy. Josephine the captain’s daughter is in love with Ralph a common sailor, but her father wants her to marry Sir Joseph Porter, First Lord of the Admiralty. The couple are caught as they elope from the ship and Ralph is locked in the ship’s dungeon. Only when certain revelations are made by Buttercup, a dockside vendor, can everyone end up freely marrying their true hearts’ loves.​

This wonderful comic opera gets the complete Illyria treatment, faithfully performed by a reduced cast on a beautiful nautical set.

​There will be some social distancing measures in place compliant with Covid regulations at the time. The audience must bring their own seating. For more information see Tickets: or 01373 832 113.
