“Black Beauty is a must-see this summer; perfect for all ages, it will leave you with memories that will stay with you forever”

Laura Stimpson
The Public Reviews

An accomplished, quality production and fun day out for all, the re-enactment of Black Beauty at war was outstanding and worthy of the West End

We seldom see theatre with this level of invention. ‘Black Beauty’ has the theatrical strength to take on a life of its own

Kevin Berry
Journalist & Theatre Critic

“The performance was so captivating even the chilly conditions failed to freeze the spirit of the cast or the audience” 

Hayley Baldwin
Brentwood Gazette & Essex Chronicle

“One of the most important aspects of a good theatre production is the scenery and special effects. And none could be more perfect for the tale of Black Beauty than the grounds of a stately home”

“A great way for children to experience theatre without the confines of an indoor stage”

“…a brilliant job. From the costumes to the quality of the actors, and the scenery, well that’s already taken care of” 

Eleanor Davies,
Essex Enquiry

“Althorp House provided a beautiful setting for the first ever stage production of Black Beauty…using different parts of the grounds, for new acts in the play, was a stroke of genius…it really feels as though you have travelled back in time and are watching the story unfold for the first time… The family friendly play ticks all the right boxes, with drama, humour, sadness and romance…. A relaxing and enjoyable atmosphere” 

Hannah Smith
Daventry Express

“Touring company, PEEL Heritage, has had the grand idea of using stately homes as the backdrop to its promenade productions … there’s much to enjoy in the bold depiction of horses and characters … sugar lumps and rosettes all round” 

Geogina Brown,
The Mail on Sunday

“The set has been carefully designed to incorporate the stunning backdrops of the historical houses”
