Treasure Island, Dukes Walkabout Theatre

Homegrown Walkabout Theatre in Williamson Park 

For 30 years, visitors have embarked on a dramatic journey like no other in a glorious corner of Lancashire.  

And this summer, the nation’s biggest outdoor walkabout theatre season celebrates its special anniversary with a sparkling production of Treasure Island from July 4 - August 12.

Lancaster’s Edwardian Williamson Park is the beautiful setting for a rare theatrical experience where the audience follow the drama by moving from one fantastic location to another with the actors.

Since 1987, Lancaster’s Dukes theatre have been entertaining generations of families during the summer with their promenade shows, creating memories to treasure for a lifetime.

Their 2016 production of The Hobbit won the UK Theatre Award for Best Show for Children and Young People and in the past 30 years, more than half a million people from far and wide have followed The Dukes to enjoy an outdoor theatre experience with a difference.

Climb aboard the Hispaniola this summer for the adventure of a lifetime.

Meet Jem Hawkins, a woman with a plan – to escape her troubles, travel the world and make a new life for herself. The problem is – she’s picked the wrong crew: an opinionated parrot, a bunch of pirate buffoons and the terrifying Long John Silver watch over her every move.

Follow Jem’s search for treasure as the winding paths and dark woodlands of Williamson Park transform into Treasure Island.

Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic novel is given a thrilling new twist by the award-winning team behind last year’s sell-out production of The Hobbit, which won the 2016 UK Theatre Award for Best Show for Children & Young People. The Dukes are delighted to restage Debbie Oates’ tremendously popular 2012 indoor production of Treasure Island, giving it a new life as this walkabout outdoor experience

Treat your family and friends this summer to an epic production in Lancaster’s magical Williamson Park.

Age guidance suitable for all pirates 5+

Adapted by Debbie Oates from the Robert Louis Stevenson novel
