Hatty Rabbit was just a normal girl from a normal family (well, as normal as families get). That is until a job offer arrives for Hatty, in the form of a letter slid underneath the door on a cold winter’s night, she is to become the Sorcerer’s Apprentice…

A truly magical treat for the whole family that’s not to be missed this Christmas.

Toast vividly recreates Nigel Slater’s childhood through the tastes and smells he shares with his mother, culminating in the young Nigel’s escape to London.

We are ‘over the moon’ to announce that Kilworth HouseTheatre will be presenting an all new and exciting production of ‘CATS’

Eliot’s Old Possum’s Book of Practical Cats is a ground-breaking musical that comes together in a sparkling fusion of music, dance and verse and includes the poignant hit song ‘Memory’. Alive with our favourite feline characters including Rum Tum Tugger, Mr Mistoffelees, Macavity, Old Deuteromy and Grizabella to name but a few. ‘CATS’ is quite simply a phenomenon.

A magical musical like no other with breath-taking choreography, set and costumes ‘CATS’ at Kilworth’ is going to be ‘the cats’ whiskers’ of shows set in the unique mystical glade that only Kilworth can offer.
