Four-day celebration of Shakespeare in Stroud

Where: Museum in the Park, Stroud

When: Thursday, May 30, to Sunday, June 2

Stroud Shakespeare Festival returns to the Museum in the Park from tomorrow (Thursday) to kick off your summer with a kaleidoscope of all things Bill.

With theatre, visual arts, children's workshops, and plenty of "mirth and merriment" in between, Stroud Shakespeare Festival will delight both newcomers to Shakespeare's work, and those with season tickets to the RSC.

As well as performances from 18 different companies, there are plenty of activities planned for the four days, including a children's trail, a dress-up box (not just for kids!), design a poster, and write your own sonnet.

Refreshments are available from great local providers such as Grouch Coffee, and The Canteen.

Tickets range from free to £10, and are available from the Stroud Shakespeare Festival website, along with details of all events and the companies that are bringing productions to the festival.

Come along and "fall into our rustic revelry!"
