A Summer of Outdoor Theatre at Speke Hall

An audience enjoying outdoor theatre

Picnics at the ready! We might be biased but we don't think there's a better backdrop for outdoor theatre than Speke Hall. Join us this summer for a great range of performances.

All of our summer theatre events take place outdoors and we're hardy sorts, so they'll only be cancelled if the weather is unsafe. We advise packing a delicious picnic, something comfy to sit on and plenty of layers if you're coming to an evening performance - even if it's a lovely sunny day, it can get chilly on the North Lawn at night.

Tickets for all of our evening outdoor theatre performances are priced at £14 for adults and £7 for children.

Much Ado About Nothing by The Three Inch Fools

Thursday 1 August, gates open at 6pm for a 7pm start

The Fools present an inventive take on Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing - a rip-roaring comedy of quarrels, deceptions and a frustratingly stupid man called Dogberry. Expect a fast-paced, musically-driven show, using all sorts of different instruments, plenty of multi-roling and many a quick costume change along the way!
