The Festival Players

Festival PlayersOnce again, we welcome the Festival Players to Woodchester Mansion - this time performing Shakespeare's comedy As You Like It.

Those who have seen the Festival Players either at the Mansion or elsewhere will know of their excitingly energetic performances both of the drama and of the presentation. Not least impressive are the fast-moving costume changes that this small all-male group are called on to make as they each play several roles during the evening. But whatever they are performing, they bring their very own interpretation of Shakespeare. This promises to be another very entertaining evening.

The performance will take place in the grounds of Woodchester Mansion, deep within the secluded Woodchester Valley.

The grounds of the Mansion will be open from 5.30 pm for you to enjoy your picnic in beautiful surroundings. Also, the Servants' Hall will be open for refreshments from 6.00 pm until the end of the interval, and visitors to the event can pre-book their theatre picnic with the Mansion directly (01453 861541) at a cost of £7.00 per head.


Tickets are £15 each and should be bought online from the Festival Players web site.

Please park in the National Trust car park. The minibuses will run from the foot of the steps from the National Trust car park from 5.30 pm.

Please note that this is an outdoor performance so please come prepared for the weather on the night. Also, please bring your own chairs, rugs, cushions.

If you have any questions please call the Mansion office on 01453 861541 or e-mail
