Tuesday 29th August: 7.00pm to 9.00pm


Join the HandleBards at Merchant Adventurers’ Hall 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. 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


The performance will be in the Great Hall and we will provide seating. There will also be tasty light snacks and refreshments available at an additional charge from The Merchants’ Coffee House available before the performance and at the interval.


Tickets are £19.50 for adults, £12.50 for children (10-17) and free for children under 10. To book your places click here.
