Venue information
Located in the beautiful Hampshire countryside, Chawton House is an Elizabethan manor once owned by Jane Austen’s brother Edward. Known to Jane as “the Great House”, she would stroll up from her cottage, now the Jane Austen’s House Museum, and “dawdle away” many happy hours in the picturesque gardens and atmospheric setting.  Now open to the public seven days a week, with a lively events programme and tearoom set in the Old Kitchen, Chawton House welcomes visitors young and old.

Our performances continue in all but the very worst weather! On very rare occasions, it will not be possible for us to complete the performance, but we will never cancel a performance before the advertised start time.

COVID-19 measures
We will be adhering to the most up to date government guidelines relating to outdoor theatre. Our tour is ‘See It Safely’ compliant, please click here for more information. Each audience member/the lead booker of your party will receive a pre-event briefing detailing what measures are in place at the venue you are attending. More information regarding our Covid safety planning can be found here. We want to make your welcome back to live theatre as safe as possible and as enjoyable as possible.

Relaxed performances
We believe that all of our performances can be considered as relaxed. The lights don’t go down (until the sun sets!), the performances take place in the open air where there is plenty of space for audience members and all are welcome. We believe that theatre should be as accessible as possible and will be happy to talk to you about how we can make it accessible for you. If you have specific questions regarding your attendance at one of our performances please do not hesitate to get in contact with us so that we can help to welcome you. Contact details are here.
