Kilworth House Theatre
The Kilworth House Theatre is the brainchild of owner and Producer Celia Mackay. Opened in 2007 with 17 performances of The Pirates of Penzance this unique theatre is set in a beautiful wooded glade close to the lake in the grounds of Kilworth House Hotel in south Leicestershire.
This stunning open-air theatre is dedicated to producing and presenting large scale professional musical theatre and was recognised in the national press as one of the Best Outdoor Theatres in the UK.
There’s a special aura and magic about open-air theatre on a beautiful English summer’s evening, so what better way to experience that magic than amidst the magnificent surroundings of the Kilworth estate, enjoying a professional production of a standard rarely seen outside the West End of London.
The auditorium has a maximum capacity of 550 comfortable, padded seats in tiered rows, all of which provide a superb view of the stage. Magnificent sail-like canopies provide protection for the whole audience and performers.
