7pm – 9pm

Join The Lord Chamberlain’s Men this summer to celebrate their 15th year with one of Shakespeare’s most popular and best-loved comedies A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Lovers at war flee to an enchanted forest alive with meddling fairies and sprites. Hoping for their true loves’ course to be set straight, instead they become further entangled and confused as they are caught in the cross fire of a fairy king and queen at odds. Meanwhile, a bumbling group of artisans prepare a play to be presented as part of the Duke’s wedding celebration.

This supernatural comedy of mischievous fairies, confused lovers and rude mechanicals is an intoxicating tale of clarity found from chaos, as tangled love gives way to happily ever afters.

Bring a chair and a picnic, and enjoy a glorious summer’s evening watching one of Shakespeare’s most enchanting comedies.

Performed in the open air, by an all male cast with Elizabethan costumes, music and dance, this promises to be an authentic and magical performance; book early to avoid missing out!

Tickets are available to purchase on the door on the night.
