Midsummer Nights Dream

23 July @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

£5 – £16.50

Join the HandleBards here at the beautiful Castletown Gardens for a hilarious, high-octane production of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream.


Four young lovers find themselves lost in a magical forest, where the Fairy King

and Queen are fighting for the possession of a changeling boy. Meanwhile, a group of amateur actors head to the same forest to rehearse for a play. Humans and fairies collide and hilarity ensues.


“Gloriously eccentric and very, very funny” ★★★★ The Stage


This is an outdoor production, so please bring your own chair or blanket to sit on,

a picnic to dig into, and dress for the weather!
