About The Pirates of Penzance at Cogges Manor Farm

The award-winning outdoor theatre company Illyria is re-staging their much-loved production of The Pirates of Penzance at Cogges Manor Farm.

Packed with memorable and well-known Gilbert and Sullivan songs, it promises a unique blend of comedy, melodrama, and glittering wit.

Frederick, an apprentice to a fearsome Pirate King, will be released from a life of crime on his 29th birthday. Unfortunately, Frederick was born on the 29th of February – a leap year. He’ll be an old man before he is free!

How long can he endure his pirate’s life? Will his sweetheart wait for him? The Pirates of Penzance is hilarious, witty, and packed with memorable songs. It is as fresh today as it ever was!

  • An outdoor theatre production on the beautiful Cogges Manor lawn – the perfect stage for open-air theatre
  • Please bring a low-back chair or blanket to sit on and dress for the weather!
  • Picnics* available to pre-order with your tickets or bring your own
  • Bar with snacks and ice cream
