Sniff out the fun with Mr Stink

Brodsworth Hall will have a very unwelcome visitor when Mr Stink strolls through the gardens…

Watch the colourful characters from the celebrated novel by David Walliams come to life in Heartbreak Productions’ adaptation of the story for the open air.

Mrs Crumb (or “Croooombe” as she would have it) is throwing a garden party for her high-achieving daughter, Annabelle.

Desperate to appear as posh as possible, Mrs Crumb has organised sweet stalls, croquet and old-fashioned party games with the aim to impress everyone.

All ages are invited to come along, join in the organised fun and get to know the Crumb family and their community.

One party-goer, however, has definitely not been invited and he happens to be an extremely stinky, homeless gentleman.

This doesn’t put off Mrs Crumb’s eldest daughter Chloe, though.

Often overlooked, Chloe and her inquisitive imagination soon put the wheels in motion for an unforgettable tale of friendship that takes them to the heady heights of live television and Downing Street via a garden shed.

An outdoor show packed with fun, humour and a heart-warming message, this adaptation of Mr Stink with some audience participation is suitable for the whole family to enjoy together.

The performance takes place on Sunday, August 30.

Doors open at 6.15pm and the show starts at 7pm.

Heartbreak productions take place in the open air and most people take a picnic to enjoy, as well as a rug or garden chairs to sit on. Pay extra to be guaranteed a seat undercover in a marquee.

Earlier in the day at the Doncaster stately home, children can also enjoy an activity called Alice and the Magic Mirror Garden.

Enter the magical world of Lewis Carroll in an enchanting quest around the Victorian Garden at Brodsworth.

There are six magic mirrors to find in keeping with the tale of Alice and a certificate prize for all who complete the quest, as well as traditional Victorian games to play on the lawn.

The mirror garden is open to visitors to the hall between 11am and 5pm every day until Bank Holiday Monday.
