Capability Brown


Burton Constable,
HU11 4LN


Its 1769 and William Constable Esq of Burton Constable Hall has big ideas. Not content with refashioning his house and tearing down stables, the old park now HAS to go.
Aided and abetted - sometimes blocked - by his lively sister Winifred and faithful steward John Raines, William is determined to transform his parkland into the height of 18th century fashion. But where is the elusive Mr 'Capability Brown? And will he ever agree to come to Holderness?
Let yourselves be transported to a dramatic decade in Burton Constable's history, a time of Rousseau, curiosities, love and loss. Inspired by original archive material with live music and sumptuous costumes, this is a unique opportunity to see the history of one of the most beautiful jewels in the East Riding Crown intimately and unforgettably brought to life.
There will only be four performances of Mr Brown's Directions with limited audiences.
