Onstage from 19:00

The Lord Chamberlain’s Men – with a history stretching back
to William Shakespeare himself – invite you to join them this
summer for the sparkling comedy, As You Like It. One of the
UK’s finest touring theatre companies present this great play
as Shakespeare first saw it performed – in the open air, by an
all male cast and with Elizabethan costumes, music and

“Love is merely a madness!”

Separately, Rosalind and her dear friend Celia, the noble
Orlando, and the usurped Duke Senior and his courtiers get
banished and set up new lives in the Forest of Arden. Free
from the constraints of their former lives lovers tussle, wits
and fools spar, familial bonds are challenged, and everyone
wrestles with what it really means to be yourself.

“The fool doth think he is wise, but the wise man knows himself to be a fool.”

In exile they become exultant as true love and true identity is
found in the forest. This rustic romp packed with music,
laughs, cross-dressing confusion and a dash of wrestling will
keep you smiling to the last.

“All the world’s a stage!”

Bring a chair and a picnic and prepare to be entertained and
transported. Book early to avoid missing out!
