Theatre Company

We are adding more shows in 2018 so get ready to rock!

The Theatre Company cast will be performing a brand new selection of unique and exciting new concepts for our guests at Craig Tara in Scotland, Devon Cliffs in Devon, Hafan y Môr in North Wales, Primrose Valley and Thornwick Bay in Yorkshire and Rockley Park in Dorset.

Over the winter we developed brand new screen technology to deliver this interactive experience for you and your family’s visit to these parks.

Each Theatre Company has handpicked professional singers, dancers and event hosts who have trained at some of the finest theatre schools. They will be keeping all the family entertained with live music shows, TV game show style productions and much more.
