A Midsummer Night's Dream - Open Air Theatre

Family Event
Sun 24th June 2018

Armed with all manner of musical instruments, The Three Inch Fools present an inventive take on Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream - a comic tale of runaway lovers, beguiling potions and a rather unfortunate individual who gets turned into a donkey.

This performance takes place outdoors on the South Lawn and we recommend you bring blankets or chairs to sit on. Do wear suitable clothing as it can get rather chilly even on Summer evenings! In the event of inclement weather, the performance will still go ahead in the Indoor Riding School.

The grounds will open at 6pm for picnics and the performance will start at 7pm prompt.


Purchase your tickets in person at the gift shop, by calling Helen Dewson on 01964 562400 or online
