What’s on in Crawley in August
This August, Crawley has some great open air performances to help you celebrate the British summer. Check out our guide for some of the highlights of the Crawley calendar this month.
Fantastic Mr Fox at Goffs Park
3rd August 2011
This fantastic family production at the Hawth, Crawley, is from Illyria – the same company that brought Roald Dahl’s James and the Giant Peach to the stage last year. Follow the antics of the Fantastic Mr Fox as he tries to feed his family, much to the despair of farmers Boggis, Bunce and Bean. Tickets for this open air production cost £12 each and families are invited to bring along their own picnics to enjoy before the show. To book your tickets or to find out more information, head to the Hawth website.
Summer theatre: Great Expectations

Quantum Theatre will be presenting Charles Dickens’ classic tale of the life of young orphan, Pip. Set in the magical surroundings of the Nymans ruins, this open air performance is not to be missed. Gates open at 6pm for picnics and tickets cost £15 per adult. Head to the National Trust website for more details.
Association of Sussex Artists Exhibition, Horsham
