The Festival Players Theatre Company is a professional theatre company delivering the best in open-air Shakespeare, committed to presenting the very best in touring theatre.  

The 2018 touring production is THE WINTER’S TALE.  Full tour details can be found here

Written by Shakespeare in his later years, The Winter’s Tale is an intriguing mix of drama and comedy. 

Sparked by an obsessive envy of a perceived relationship between his Queen and his oldest friend, Leontes, King of Sicilia, sets in motion a train of events which affect two kingdoms and two generations; there is jealousy and joy, revenge and romance, loss and discovery, remorse and revelry, and an amazing revelation.

Tremendous entertainment for a Summer evening!

WEDNESDAY 8th AUGUST 2018 performance starts at 7.00PM.

Open air performance.  Grounds open at 6.00pm.  Bring your own seating and a picnic.
