Simon Butteriss is a familiar face at the Festival and well-known patter man.
This year he directs and stars in Patience and can also be seen in The Emerald Isle. Simon was a chorister at Westminster Abbey, ran away to play The Wilnslow Boy in its first West End revival, was a member of The National Youth Theatre, read English at Cambridge and studied at the Royal College of Music Opera School. Come and listen to his fascinating story.
And you can also see Simon in a special performance in the beautiful theatre at Chatsworth House this evening.
