Join us in the Palace Gardens this summer for our best line-up of outdoor theatre yet!

Wuthering Heights, Friday 16 June

A beautiful and haunting adaptation that will make audiences fall in love with Emily Brontë’s novel all over again.

Sense and Sensibility, Friday 14 July

Sense and Sensibility follows the trials and triumphs of Elinor and Marianne Dashwood as they make their first tentative forays into Regency Society – a world where the parties are tremendous, emotions always run high, and every woman is on the lookout for a husband!

A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Wednesday 19 July

Join the HandleBards at Southwell Minster 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. 


Tickets for all shows are on sale from The Cathedral Shop (in person or 01636 812933) or from the above links.

We can’t wait to welcome you to outdoor entertainment at its very finest in the beautiful Palace Gardens.

Bring a picnic and chairs!
