Open air performance of Sherlock Holmes & the Hound of the Baskervilles to take place in the grounds of luxury Northumbrian Hall

It has just been announced today that Doxford Hall Hotel, part of the Robert Parker Collection of hotels, will welcome back the Chapterhouse Theatre Company for the second summer running. This year’s open air performance of Sherlock Holmes and the Hound of the Baskervilles is to take place in the walled garden on 14th July.

Back by popular demand, last year the Chapterhouse Theatre Company performed Shakespeare’s A Mid Summer Night’s Dream to a packed audience at the renowned country house hotel. The Company have been delighting audiences since 1999 with their inventive open air shows around the UK and Ireland.

Mark Booth, General Manager of Doxford Hall, commenting on their return said: “Last year was such a huge success, and enjoyed by all who attended, so we are delighted to welcome back the Chapterhouse Theatre Company. I think the beautiful grounds of the hotel will be the perfect setting for Arthur Conan Doyle’s brooding mystery and I for one am looking forward to the performance.”

Bring a picnic and your best detective skills for an unforgettable evening of mystery, suspense and theatre under the stars. The performance will begin at 5.30pm, and anyone interested in purchasing tickets should contact Doxford Hall on 01665 589 700.

Doxford Hall, located less than 10 miles North of Alnwick, is one of the more recent additions to the hotel sector in Northumberland and has received much acclaim in the six years since it opened. With ample parking and wonderful grounds Doxford is the natural location for such an exciting event.

Tickets, which can be booked online at Chapterhouse’s website, or via the Hotel are Adults £14; Children £10; and a Family of 2 adults and 2 children £42.

Go to, or ring Doxford Hall on 01665 589 700.

Chapterhouse Theatre is based in Lincoln, and was formed as a vehicle for touring Open-air productions of Shakespeare, under its director Richard Main, who is a Jaz Musician as well as an actor-director. As the Sage says: “What Chapterhouse does is theatre at the coalface, carried by the power of acting, cheeky engagement with the audience and a refreshing absence of anything technical, and they do it with distinction.”
