Festival Players

Thursday 25th August


patron Dame Judi Dench

We're delighted to be welcoming the Festival Players Theatre Company back to Woodchester Mansion on their summer tour. On Thursday 25th August this great all-male band of itinerant players will perform Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream.

The performance is outdoors and starts at 6:30pm. Tickets cost £16 and can be booked here, or phone 01726 63513. The grounds are open for picnics from 5:30pm. Please bring a rug/cushions or low-backed chair to sit on, a big mac (if wet), and a coat/warm pullover (for later in the evening in normal English summer weather).

A Midsummer Night's Dream provides a great introduction to Shakespeare for younger family members, and the all-male cast means the performance is aligned with the playwright's original vision. In addition, we offer the novelty of open air theatre with the backdrop of the historic Mansion - and no price increase in tickets from 2021!
