Gawsworth Hall

Project Description

Gawsworth Hall has been held by only five families since Norman times. Today it is the home of Elizabeth Richards, and her sons Rupert and Jonathan. The house boasts fine paintings, furniture, sculpture and stained glass. The grounds are no less impressive, with a rookery, tilting ground and Elizabethan pleasure garden.

The hall is also renowned for its outdoor theatre, featuring fine comedy, music, drama and opera since 1969. Performances take place in the Hall’s pretty Tudor courtyard.


A new website was commissioned with information about the Hall and events that are held there and also an online store where you can book tickets to their theatre.


The design of the site was decided upon to appeal to their (generally) more mature audience. WooCommerce was picked as the e-commerce solution as it provided a simple but effective online store.

Additional functionality was developed for the store in order that bookings could be downloaded from the site for ease of managing bookings at the hall.

Project Features

Online Store

The site also includes an online store where we chose our favourite e-commerce solution, WooCommerce.

WooCommerce is arguably the most customisable eCommerce solution offering a great “out of the box” solution but boasts a host of plugins that allow customisation of the store and shopping experience.
