Enjoy a picnic in the beautiful grounds followed by a performance of this amusing and whitty Noel Coward classic, in the sumptuous setting of this country house.

The Novelist Charles Condomine invites an eccentric clairvoyant to his country house to conduct a seance hoping to gather material for his next book. But his temperamental ex-wife Elvira appears only to him and attempts to disrupt his second marriage to his wife Ruth, who cannot see or hear the ghost.
