William Shakespeare's Twelfth Night

We are delighted to welcome the Chatsworth Players
for one night in the Wildhive meadow.

Thursday 18th July 2024 - 7pm

Join Chatsworth Players for one of theatre’s original Rom-Coms - Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night. Full of unrequited love, mistaken identities, swordfights, knaves, fools, and general tomfoolery, Twelfth Night is a beloved classic. Shakespeare’s plays are full of lines we all know, and this one is no different, “If music be the food of love, play on”, “Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them”, and “better a witty fool than a foolish wit”.

So grab your camping chair or picnic blanket, some snacks, and weather-appropriate clothing (we will go ahead in the rain) and head to the meadow at Wildhive Callow Hall for Shakespeare’s uproarious and entertaining Twelfth-Night.

£12.50 per person
