 Pope's Grotto open days and 

Alexander Pope: A Search for Perfection

Twickenham Festival 2017

Pope's Grotto, in Radnor House School, will be open on three Saturday mornings during the Twickenham Festival from 10am until 3pm, with last entrance at 2:30pm.

On Saturdays 10th and 24th June, there will be performances of 'Alexander Pope: A Search for Perfection'  - a dramatic piece about Alexander Pope, commissioned by the Trust and performed by Giles Abbott, award-winning storyteller. Performances will be in the Grotto itself and will run throughout the day at intervals of approximately 30 minutes. Tickets are untimed so you can see the performance and explore the Grotto in your own time. Concessions and family tickets are available. This event is sponsored by Arts Council England

On Saturday 17th of June, the Grotto will be open and tickets are untimed, as in past years. Concessions are available.

Please note that space in the Grotto is limited and you may be asked to wait at peak times. The school's café, with a terrace overlooking the river with views towards Twickenham and Teddington, will be open for refreshments. Books and postcards will be on sale. 

Some tickets may be available at the door on each day, but you are advised to book in advance to avoid disappointment.
