Seeing an outdoor show is a wonderful experience, and there's really nothing quite like it. That said, performing in the great outdoors brings a number of special considerations.
We advise all audience members to check the weather forecast prior to coming to a show, and make sure to pack sun cream, sun hat, wet weather gear and any other necessary items. Please do not use umbrellas while watching a show, as they can obstruct the view of other audience members. We recommend plastic ponchos as a cheap and effective way of keeping dry. Shakespeare's Wanderers perform in all but the worst weather conditions and will rarely cancel a show. More information is available on our weather policy.
While we think that our shows are a great introduction to Shakespeare and outdoor theatre, you'll need to consider whether your children will be able to sit through a two hour performance. Our recommended age guidance is six years and above, but some younger children may enjoy the show - we'll leave it to your judgement. We're happy for people to bring dogs along to a show, as long as they're able to sit quietly throughout the performance.
PLEASE NOTE - If you buy a ticket for one of our shows, we will retain your name, email address and phone number to process your transaction. If you choose to hear from us about future performances, we will only contact you by email.
Your personal data is protected by legal rights, which include your rights to object to our processing of your personal data; request that your personal data is erased or corrected; request access to your personal data.

Our latest production
In the summer of 2021, we toured our production of Twelfth Night.
This lively new take on Shakespeare's beloved comedy will take audiences back to the roaring twenties for an evening of romance, fun and mischief.
When Viola is shipwrecked in a strange new land, she decides to disguise herself as a man to enter the service of Duke Orsino and earn her keep. The Duke tasks Viola with delivering his messages of love to the Lady Olivia who is in mourning for her brother. A simple task, but one which will entangle each of them in a confused love triangle – all while Sir Toby leads the servants in a merry war against Malvolio, Lady Olivia’s pompous steward.
With six versatile actors, we will take audiences on a gorgeous outdoor adventure combining music, dance and a good dose of comedy. This family-friendly show is suitable for ages six and up and is a great introduction to outdoor theatre and Shakespeare.
Praise for our production of Twelfth Night:
''A fabulous performance of Twelfth Night. Laughs galore as the suitors fought, bravo Andrew Aguecheek and Cesario! A delightful alfresco evening’s entertainment.''
''What an absolute treat it was to watch Shakespeare's Wanderers do Twelfth Night this evening! Full of heart, soul and joy! Bravo to the stella cast.''
''On behalf of my group of colleagues (we work just along the road), I wanted to express my delight in your production last night and say bravo! You coped admirably regardless of the lashing rain. We had such an enjoyable evening despite the ‘wind and foul weather’!''
‘‘Thanks to Shakespeare's Wanderers for a terrific Twelfth Night yesterday evening at St George's Gardens. A fun, charming, heartfelt romp through Illyria that was a joy to watch. Great cast, great costumes and an impressive collective vocal performance battling the Bloomsbury hurricanoes.’’
