Event Details

Address:Chumleigh Gardens Burgess Park
Burgess Park

Post code:SE5 0RJ

Tickets: £10 and £8 unwaged (plus booking fee)


Chumleigh Gardens and Burgess Park provide an ideal setting for A Midsummer Night's Dream, in which Shakespeare conjures up the magical world of the Fairies and the marrage of Duke Theseus to Hippolyta. We see the playful sprite 'Puck' making his mischief with the comedy of two sets of rival lovers, the transformation of 'Bottom' into an Ass, and the amateur players, the Mechanicals, with a very comedic play within the play! It also sees Titania and Oberon and the magical world of the forest (Burgess Park) come to life before your eyes!

A Midsummer Night's Dream is one of Shakespeare's best loved and most famous comedies, Our contemporary version of the play has been set in the Aylesbury Estate in the swinging 1960s! It is a psychedelic romp of physical theatre, music and fun.

Bring a picnic or have a drink from our on-site bar, and sit back and enjoy Shakespeare in this informal and beautiful setting.

Tickets: £10 and £8 unwaged (plus booking fee)
Friday, 19th July, at 7.00 pm (door close at 7 pm so allow 15 minutes to be seated)
