    Amazing as always!
    Thoroughly enjoyed this years production - Hairspray. A vibrant and energetic cast gave everything and fully deserved the standing ovation they received. So many great voices, colourful costumes and, as usual, an orchestra that didn't miss a beat. A shame that Kilworth is only staging one show this year though.
    Thankyou so much for your wonderful review! We are so pleased to hear how much you enjoyed this years production of Hairspray and look forward to welcoming you back again soon!

    Theatre oasis in the woodland of the hotel grounds
    We had tickets to the Hairspray Show, which was fantastic. The singing & musicians were fantastic. The weather was not kind & poured the whole evening but the cast carried on regardless with the stage staff continually mopping the outer edges. Thank goodness for the sail roof cover which kept everyone dry. There is a bar behind the seating area, which serves drinks & snacks, with a pre-order system available, which we hadn’t realised but the queues weren’t too bad so we still had time for an ice-cream. Toilet facilities are available in the woodland area & a mobile toilet facility in the car park. It was a very enjoyable show, despite the weather. Highly recommend
    Thankyou so much for your lovely review. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the Hairspray Show, despite the rainy weather. We hope to welcome you back to Kilworth House Theatre again!

    Fabulous experience
    Went to see three shows at the theatre this August. All were fabulous. The theatre is lovely. The parking is great with staff directing you in and out. At the last two shows it was cold in the evening but you can have a blanket for a charity donation which is great The shows we saw were, Last night of the proms. The ELO experience and lastly Money for nothing who we have seen before My only criticism is the price of the drinks
    Thank you for your review , we are so pleased that you enjoyed the three shows that you came to see this summer as part of our annual "Live at Kilworth" season and we look forward to welcoming you back to Kilworth House Theatre again soon.

    Lovely outdoor Theatre, great day out!
    We went to The Theatre part for a showing of Hairspray. The grounds are beautiful, so much rich heritage and history to look around. The Theatre bars/cafe stand were really efficient at serving. It is great that you can order drinks/snacks to be ready for you at the interval. The open air Theatre area is beautiful, unfortunately due to rain we had to have the roof down. But all in all a lovely day. We would definitely visit again.

    Wonderful open air theatre
    A truly exceptional experience at Kilworth House Theatre. Stunning set and talented cast. The outdoor venue is very special at night but can get cold. Blankets are available for £1. The matinee is a totally different experience. We always stay at the hotel on a Theatre break

Went to see hairspray with some friends and the show was FANTASTIC…A defo 10/10 performance would definitely watch it again!!! However the average review comes from the price of a wine spritzer at £9.95…absolute robbery!! I’m all for spending more money at these types of venues but £9.95 for a small spritzer in a plastic cup is disgusting!!!

Good afternoon and thankyou so much for your wonderful review of our performance of Hairspray! We had an incredibly talented and hard working cast and production team and I know they would all be delighted to hear how much you enjoyed the performance. With regards to the price of the wine spritzer, I understand that this was incorrectly overcharged on the night and that we have subsequently been in contact with you in order to rectify this error and refund the overcharges. We look forward to welcoming you back to Kilworth House Theatre again soon!

Went to see hairspray today and wasn’t disappointed. Brilliant performances by all. Would have got 5 stars but we bought 2 cups of tea and was charged £8. Think that is very overpriced.
