A SEASON of outdoor theatre begins with a bad smell at Tyntesfield next week.

A stage adaption of David Walliams’ popular book Mr Stink will be performed under the stars and with the estate’s Victorian Gothic house as its backdrop.

Mr Stink is a play filled with fun, humour and a heart-warming message, and tells the story of 12-year-old 
Chloe and a very smelly man, as they forge an friendship which takes them all the way to Downing Street and sees them make a live television appearance.

Mr Stink marks the beginning of a season of outdoor theatre, which sees the National Trust estate near Bristol host Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night on August 1, children’s classic The Reluctant Dragon on August 11-12, and Frances Hodgson Burnett’s novel The Secret Garden on September 5.

Mr Stink will be performed at Tyntesfield on July 24 at 7.30pm.

Tickets, priced £8-15 for individual tickets of £31-46 for group tickets, are available from or by calling 08442 491895.
