Arbury Hall has been the seat of the Newdegate family for over 400 years and is the ancestral home of Viscount and Viscountess Daventry. This beautiful Elizabethan house, was built on the site of a 12th century Augustinian Priory. It was transformed in the 18th century to become the finest example of Gothic Revival architecture in the country. The house contains fine collections of antique furniture, pictures, glass and china and many of the splendid rooms of the house are on view to the public.

Standing in it's own parkland, the Hall is surrounded by delightful landscaped gardens with wooded walks and lakes.

George Eliot, born on the estate in 1819 where her father was the agent, features Arbury in several of her novels, especially "Scenes Of Clerical Life" where in "Mr Gilfil's Love Story" she portrays Arbury as Cheveral Manor and gives detailed descriptions of many of the rooms in the house including The Saloon and Dining Room.

PLAYBOX THEATRE                                                                          
The Dream Factory, Shelley Avenue, Warwick CV34 6LE

Playbox Theatre - The National Theatre for Young People

For 25 years Playbox Theatre has developed theatre for and with young people, placing at its heart young people as both artists and audience.

Based at our custom designed complex ‘The Dream Factory’ in Warwick, we develop the skills, talent and confidence of young people through exciting and innovative methods including theatre, movement, circus, multimedia and extraordinary live events.

Playbox reaches all ages, demographics and community through a very special programme of training, performance, enrichment through the arts and partnerships.

Young artists push boundaries; creating original work which reflects our age, our values, our debates, our concerns, our humour and most importantly our dreams. We state what we think theatre should be, not what others think or expect, we break taboos and challenge labels that young people just don’t want. 

Our aspiration is to make new work, evoke a wild spirit and tackle new themes in original and moving ways.
