Fairies, a mischievous sprite, mismatched lovers and the head of a donkey…it can only be A Midsummer Night’s Dream, one of Shakespeare’s most beloved plays. Performed by outdoor theatre company Illyria, in the magical setting of The Loggia at Hever Castle, this timeless comedy explores love in all its forms: delightful, deceptive and downright deluded!
Bring something comfortable to sit on, and dress for the weather!
A Midsummer Night’s Dream: Tuesday, 30 August, 19:30. Running time: 2hrs 20mins, including a 20 minute interval. Suitable for all ages 5+
