Head to Nostell Priory for a magical summer evening of theatre on the Vista – enjoy a new adaptation of A Midsummer Night’s Dream by the Duke’s Theatre Company.

Featuring live music, beautiful design and theatrical sparkle, A Midsummer Night’s Dream is Shakespeare’s most celebrated and comic fairy tale.

Oberon and Titania’s marital mayhem unleashes chaos on four young lovers with disastrous – and hilarious – consequences. Meanwhile, deep in the forest, a troupe of aspiring actors prepare for the most important night of their lives – a command performance before the Duke and Duchess. And, as the King and Queen of the Fairy Kingdom become entwined with the human world, a night of madness, music and magic ensues…

Round up the whole family, early booking is advised for this live open air theatre show. Bring along your blankets and chairs, and don’t forget to pack a picnic. Dreamy.
