The Secret Garden | Layer Marney Tower, Essex

Layer Marney Tower Sunday 24th July 4pm

Following a hugely successful 2021 summer tour with SOLD OUT performances across the South East of England, The Secret Garden returns to enchant new and returning audiences...

Join Mary on her journey to discovering The Secret Garden in this family-friendly, dance adaptation of the best-selling novel by Frances Hodgson Burnett. 
Performed by an accomplished cast of dancers and musicians, the iconic story is brought to life like never before, in this high-quality, one-hour ballet.  
With a brand-new score and original choreography, The Secret Garden offers an enchanting, unforgettable experience for adults and children alike. 

Immerse yourself fully in the story this summer, as each performance takes place outdoors, against an array of stunning backdrops that each beautiful venue has to offer. What could be more perfect than watching The Secret Garden against the backdrop of a park, manor house or inside a walled garden?

New Creations Collective is a Kent-based dance company, using classical and contemporary artforms to tell timeless, hope-inspiring stories. The company aims to push the boundaries of typically theatrical artforms by creating work that is highly accessible and can be performed outside of the theatre. We bring the show to the people!
