Midsummer Night's Dream

Thursday, 22nd June 2017 : 6.45pm


Southwell Minster is staging their first ever outdoor theatre event in collaboration with Handlebards Theatre Company on in the beautiful setting of the education garden, next to the Archbishop's Palace.   A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream is being brought to the cathedral by the four-strong troupes of cycling actors who carry with them on their bicycles all of the necessary set, props and costume ‘to perform extremely energetic, charmingly chaotic and environmentally sustainable Shakespeare plays across the globe.’   Shortlisted for The Stage Award 2017, the company specialise in outdoor theatre but are happy performing almost anywhere. Whilst the all-male troupe are currently touring with A Midsummer Night’s Dream. Their all-female troupe are currently getting ready for their summer tour of As You Like It.   The garden opens at 6pm and people are welcome to bring their own picnics. The production starts at 6.45pm.  Refreshments will be available to purchase on the evening. Tickets on sale soon in the Cathedral Shop, contact Kathryn Anderson on 01636 817284 or from www.handlebards.com/tickets/a-midsummer-nights-dream-southwell-minster  

Event Location: Archbishop's Palace, Southwell
