AN outdoor theatre is returning to Walton Gardens this summer and you can win free tickets.

We’ve teamed up with Walton Hall and Gardens to offer Warrington Guardian readers a free family ticket per production.

Four shows will be taking place against the backdrop of the beautiful grounds, showcased by the popular Heartbreak Production.

The first of the productions is MacHamLear, one for Shakespeare lovers.

Attendees will be invited to come and cast their vote at the battle of the Bard on Friday, June 9.

Next is Bad Dad, a warm-hearted tale that follows the highs and lows of a father-son relationship, based on the book by celebrated children’s author, David Walliams.

The show will be hosted at Walton Hall and Gardens on two dates this summer – Friday, June 16, and Friday, September 1. And we will be offering a free family ticket for both shows.

And the third production in this year’s Jane Austen adaption Sense and Sensibility will be held on Friday, August 5.

For a chance to win a free family ticket, all you need to do is correctly answer a question.

For each show, there will be a different question.

To enter the draw for this Friday’s MacHamLear showing, all you need to do is tell us which date it is taking place by emailing

We’ll be in touch with the winner ahead of the event.
