A summer season of outdoor theatre is launching at the Lowther Pavilion next week.

Blackpool-based producer Tim Lince brings Pendle Productions’ series of shows for all the family to the Rose Garden from Wednesday, July 30.

The first outing will be the Dragon Who Lost His Home, an environmental musical, followed by The Wizard Of Oz, Alice Through The Looking Glass, The Railway Children and The Emperor’s New Clothes.

“We’ve been running these summer outdoor theatre seasons for about 15 years up and down the country, but about five years at the Lowther,” Tim said.

“It’s becoming ever more popular for people to pack a picnic and come to the park for theatre.

“We’re lucky here too, that we move indoors from the rose garden if the weather isn’t favourable.”

Tim says the audiences should find Alice and the Dragon Who Lost His Home especially touching – staged in the beautiful garden setting.

“It’s a lovely space 
for these stories, especially the Dragon Who Lost 
His Home which is an 
eco-musical,” he said.

“It’s great to bring theatre to the environment, among the roses and flowers in a relaxed manner.

“The Dragon Who Lost His home features a 12-foot mother dragon and her eight-foot baby, and they’re two of the most loveable dragons you could ever meet.

“The story is such a strong start to the season.”
