4 June 2022
From 12.30pm to 7.00pm

Continuing our Proms in the Park Season

Join us on the Great Lawn for a second relaxed summer afternoon.

This event will take place on the afternoon of Saturday 4th June and will continue our Summer ‘Proms’ Calendar.

We have a fantastic roaming performance of Dragon Quest, by the incredible After Dark Theatre, taking place around the lawns, the Italian Lake and the Pigeon Tower from 12.30 onwards.

It’s time to take a amazing journey to the mythical Forest of Fantasy and Fables where you’ll enrol in the legendary Dragon Camp and help these fantastic beasts and their friends complete a magical mission.

Someone is plotting to steal the legendary Golden Dragon Egg and it is up to you to uncover the truth. On your incredible quest you’ll get to meet with the dragons, solve their puzzles, uncover clues and complete your adventure and become a master of dragons.

Part Mystery, Part Scavenger Hunt, Part Treasure Trail, this interactive event is fun for all the family. Plus there’s plenty of opportunities to meet and interact with the fascinating and fantastical dragons along the way.

It’s a legendary day out for all fantasy fans out there so put your dragon skills to the test and come and help us save the day!
