Open Air Theatre: Pride & Prejudice

Heartbreak Productions in association with Friends of Longford Park presents

Pride & Prejudice

by Jane Austen

We are pleased to announce that the Prince Regent is coming to visit. You are hereby required to attend an etiquette lesson hosted by The Association of Higher Etiquette and Manners (A.H.E.M.), who will educate you in the politesse of high society.

Join Heartbreak, the Bennet sisters, and a host of charming young bachelors (yes, Mr Darcy will be there. No really, yes, that Mr Darcy) for an evening of comedy, romance, and more than one come-uppance, as we learn how to behave, ahem, properly.

Champagne and cucumber sandwiches are permitted at this outdoor adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice, but do ensure you know how to properly use a napkin, remember to chew with your mouths closed, and please try not to fall in love with Mr Darcy, as we believe he is very soon to be engaged. (You may also want to bring a blanket or chair to sit on and an umbrella, should the weather look inclement).


£12. (Under 5s free) Recommended Age 8+
Advance tickets for this performance are highly recommended and are available at these locations:
Online at Eventbrite (fees apply)
Longford Cafe (cash or cheque only)
Newslink at Stretford Metro (cash or cheque only)
Chorlton Bookshop (cash or cheque only)

What to Bring

Seating is not provided! Please bring your own chair or blanket/rug, bubbly, cucumber sandwiches and some warm clothing just in case!

Doors open at 6.30pm


For those that have not previously been to one of our open air theatre productions, the performance is held in the People’s Millions Garden adjacent to the formal Gardens. Click on the Satellite view on the map below for the exact location within the park. There will be two main access points, one on the Eastern side (follow the path alongside the Athletics Stadium) and a second on the Western side (follow the road past the cafe and it’ll be on the right past the Community Allotments). Once you get inside the park follow the signs. There will be volunteers at hand should you require assistance.

Gates open at 6:30pm


We would rather you left the car at home, but if you do drive, the easiest option is to park at the large car park next to the Athletics Stadium off Ryebank Road. There is a second smaller car park past the cafe for people with mobility issues. We kindly ask you to respect the parking restrictions within Longford Park.


Toilets are located at Longford Cafe and will be closed after the interval. Please note that the cafe itself may not be serving food or drinks from 5:00pm onward so we advise that you bring refreshments along.
