The adventures of doctor dolittle by illyria at canons ashby

Bring the family and a picnic to enjoy this much-loved story, brought to life by Illyria in the beautiful grounds of Canons Ashby.

Dr John Dolittle of Puddleby-on-the-Marsh starts out as a human doctor. But once he is taught by his wise old parrot Polynesia how to talk to animals he becomes the most celebrated veterinary doctor in England. Word of his skill spreads and animals across the world send messages asking for his help. So he buys a leaky old ship and, together with his trusty pet-crew, sets forth on a mission to heal illness, right wrongs and gain a greater understanding of the animal kingdom.

Ticket prices are £14 for adults (17 years and over) and £8 for children (3 – 16 years).
