This is the third year of outdoor Shakespeare and each year it has grown so we were especially delighted to be adding new venues this season.



Lovers, Fairies and a bunch of fool’s trying to put on a play in a thoroughly enchanting setting? Sound’s like Sudden Impulse are returning to Chipping Campden, Astley Castle and other venues with another hit Shakespeare.

Following our much talked about success last year with Much Ado About Nothing, the award-winning Sudden Impulse Theatre Company, in partnership with the Landmark Trust return to Old Campden House and other venues.

We were delighted to return to Church End Brewery. This will be the second time we have been to Church End with our Shakespeare and last year Sold Out very quickly.


Polesworth Abbey is another stunning jewel in the heritage of North Warwickshire and the old school house may well have seen a young William Shakespeare attend classes for a period of time. It was certainly where poet Michael Drayton was educated. Our production took place in the walled gardens of the Abbey which sloped down the pastures towards the River Anker.


Princethorpe College is a co–educational independent day school founded in 1966. It occupies the site of a former Benedictine Monastery that dates back to 1792 and is set in 200 acres of land in this stunning Warwickshire setting. A perfect way to spend a June evening.


Astley Castle is steeped in history, set in beautiful surroundings of the North Warwickshire countryside Astley has stood for centuries. Devastated by fire the castle has been lovingly restored by The Landmark Trust combining modern building techniques to the ancient stones with stunning results. The perfect setting for Shakespeare.


We were delighted to have been invited to perform inside the church, our only indoor event. This beautiful village in North Warwickshire is a delightful and popular new addition.


The Banqueting House at Old Campden House, Chipping Campden is another beautiful Landmark Trust property. In the heart of the Cotswolds. An idyllic summer setting.
