Come and join us

This Summer


We are very excited to bring you our Summer Events 2022.

Open Air Theatre

There will be four open air theatre performances this year.

We feel very lucky to be able to welcome the British Touring Shakespeare Company to Little Ponton Hall for the first time. They will be performing two plays, one in June and one in July.  “The Merry Wives of Windsor” is on Saturday 18th June followed by Bram Stokers ‘Dracula’ on Saturday 9th July. Both performances start at 3pm.

Please save Friday 26th August in your dairy as we are thrilled that our old friends DOT Productions are returning this year and will perform two plays in one day! Following the enormous success of ‘Robin Hood’ last year we are lucky to be having another family production this year. ‘The Jungle Book’ will begin at 3pm.  This will be followed by George Bernard Shaw’s “Pygmalion” at 7.30pm.

Tickets are available through this website. Please scroll down to the ‘Whats on’ section below.

Roses in Bloom

On Sunday 19th June we will be opening our gardens from 11am to 4pm. We hope that the roses will be in full bloom and you will enjoy seeing the garden in a different season. There will be stalls and light refreshments will be on sale. The beautiful village Church will also be open for you to have a look around.

You do not need to buy ticket in advance.  You can pay £5 on the gate, on the day. We recommend cash as we do not (as yet!) have card facilities at the gate.

As always, well behaved dogs on leads are most welcome!

We hope that you are able to join us and look forward to meeting you.

Welcome to

Little Ponton Hall


Little Ponton Hall and its gardens nestle in the curve of the River Witham as it winds its way through the rolling countryside of South Lincolnshire towards Lincoln.
The 18th century house, home to George and Bianca McCorquodale and their two daughters, is surrounded by spacious lawns dominated by a 200 year old cedar tree. In the walled vegetable garden are the Victorian greenhouses and a listed dovecote. The most recent addition is the development of a herb garden.
Adjoining the garden is the tiny village church dedicated to St. Guthlac.
In the early spring, swathes of snowdrops clothe the river banks, and aconites form a golden carpet around the Church walk.
This is a magical, secret garden, rarely opened to the public.
