Doncaster Mansion House/ Citizen Ceremony Hall

Are you wanting to visit a piece of lavish architectural history while in Doncaster? Well this is the Stack for you! Doncaster’s elegant Mansion House, a focus for civic pride, has dominated the High Street for over two hundred and fifty years. It is one of only three Mansion Houses remaining in the country along with those in London and York.

The Mansion House was the residence of the Mayor of Doncaster from 1750 to 1922 and as such was finished in a manner, which reflected the importance, dignity and tradition of the office of the First Citizen of the Borough. Although there have been minor changes to the Palladian design, the existing interior features have been retained. Within the impressive rooms, many treasured artefacts are displayed. The artefacts have been acquired over a period of 200 years and represent a myriad of styles and magnificently illustrate changes in local and national society and culture.

For this is a world of folklore, but also a world of immortality, and when you live forever there is one thing everyone craves but no one can keep for long: youth. Described by critics as a “a superb production” (North West End UK ★★★★) and “the best of classical versus modern storytelling” (Breaking the Fourth Wall ★★★★), this new musical by Emma Hawkins and Carrie Penn premiered to great commercial and critical success at the Oxford Playhouse in November 2021, and it is now visiting the Little Theatre for 2 shows only on its tour this summer. Content Warning depictions of sexual assault, emotional abuse and miscarriage, mentions of mental illness. Running time - 2 hours 30 minutes (inc interval).
