Peak District B&B Near Chatsworth House: Jane Eyre at Haddon Hall

In celebration of Haddon Hall's connection with Jane Eyre over the years‚ Derbyshire writer and actress Gillian Shimwell has been commissioned by the Manners family to write an exciting new promenade play‚ Jane Eyre at Haddon Hall. It will be performed for the first time this season from 21st to 23rd June. 

Gillian has been a guide at the hall for many years and was thrilled to be offered the challenge of writing and directing the play to fit into the home she knows so well.

Visitors booked for one of the performances will be greeted by Thornfield Hall's housekeeper Mrs Fairfax who will lead them on a tour during which costumed actors will recreate significant events from the book.  As well as Jane guests will meet the bullying schoolteacher Mr Brocklehurst and the brooding Mr Rochester. From behind locked doors they will hear the insane screams of his first wife‚ and the pitiful calls for Jane by the lovelorn Mr Rochester will echo around the hall.

This sounds very exciting‚ particularly as nearly every filmed production of Jane Eyre has been filmed at Haddon Hall‚ including both the most recent BBC adaptation and Hollywood version.

Remember‚ Haddon Hall is just two miles from The Old Station House B&B!!
