Outdoor Theatre at Rufford Old Hall
All the world’s a stage! And this summer, Rufford Old Hall becomes the perfect backdrop for your outdoor theatre fix this summer.
We are playing host to two incredibly talented acting troupes, The HandleBards and The Three Inch Fools, who will be bringing the bard to life in our stunning formal gardens.
SOLD OUT As You Like It - The HandleBards
Saturday 22 July, 6pm gates open for a 7pm start.
The world’s first cycling theatre company, The HandleBards, pedal from venue to venue with all the set, props and costume necessary to perform environmentally sustainable Shakespeare across the globe. Join their all-female troupe for this bicycle-powered production, and (in usual HandleBards style) expect riotous amounts of energy, a fair old whack of chaos, and a great deal of laughter.
SOLD OUT Romeo and Juliet – The Three Inch Fools
Thursday 10 August, 6pm gates open for a 7 pm start.
Tickets – Adults £14. Children £12.50. Limited tickets available now from Rufford Old Hall’s Reception and online at www.threeinchfools.com
Five actors, with all manner of musical instruments, present an inventive take on Shakespeare’s infamous story of whirlwind romance and bitter tragedy. The Three Inch Fools are a five-strong troupe of actors with all manner of musical instruments, travelling with set, props, costumes and camping gear, performing a highly imaginative and vibrantly musical take on Shakespeare's plays.
What should I bring?
Bring along a picnic, a deckchair and potentially a coat with a hood as these performances will go ahead in any weather unless we think it is unsafe for the show to go ahead! A pop up shop will be open during the interval for light refreshments, picnic blankets and souvenirs.
