Outdoor Theatre: Hamlet presented by The Lord Chamberlain's Men

The Lord Chamberlain’s Men invite you to join them this summer for the classic tragic tale of death and revenge.

  • Booking essential

With a history stretching back to William Shakespeare himself they present this great play as he first saw it, in the open air, with an all male cast and Elizabethan costumes, music and dance. It's described as 'Thrilling, moving and deeply human this stunning play seeks answers to life’s biggest questions and, in doing so, holds up a mirror to all our natures'. The event will be at Dyrham Park for two nights - Friday 26 and Saturday 27 July 2024. We'd advise booking early to avoid any disappointment.
