New Creations Collective is proud to announce a brand-new, original production of The Secret Garden. This is the first professional dance adaptation in the UK, based on the bestselling novel, The Secret Garden, by Frances Hodgson Burnett, re-telling the story through classical music and dance.

Join Mary on her journey to discovering The Secret Garden in this family friendly production, guaranteed to be an unforgettable experience for audiences of all ages. 

Featuring a brand-new score, composed by Adam Kornas and original choreography by Nina Monteiro, the iconic story is brought to life like never before, in this high-quality, one-hour ballet.

With 16 performances in the open air, at 10 of the UK’s best loved historical houses and gardens, this unique production is performed by an accomplished cast of dancers and musicians, bringing West End quality performances to audiences outside of London, without the West End price tag.

Immerse yourself fully in the story this summer, as each performance takes place outdoors, against an array of stunning backdrops that each beautiful venue has to offer. What could be more perfect than watching The Secret Garden against the backdrop of a park, manor house or walled garden?

Conceptualised before Covid-19, this production was always designed to be an outdoor show, however this now means that we are able to offer the security and safety needed for audiences to enjoy this one of a kind show, with the aim to allow audiences to experience ballet (possibly for the first time) through this truly mesmerising performance.
