Creswell Crags is pleased to announce a bumper year of outdoor theatre with two performances from the renowned Chapterhouse Theatre Company.

‘Building on the success of previous years, Creswell Crags is establishing its name as one of Britain’s most unusual outdoor theatre venues, we have increased our theatre programme this year,’ explains Learning Officer, Hannah Tidswell. ‘It is an exciting position to be in and we are very much looking forward to both performances.’

On July 29, Chapterhouse Theatre Company will present ‘Romeo and Juliet,’ the greatest love story ever told as Shakespeare’s unforgettable tale of romance and passion tours beautiful open-air venues across the UK and Ireland. Join family and friends to picnic under the stars and enjoy this wonderful new production, alive with magnificent costumes and original music.

The picturesque landscape of Creswell Crags will provide the perfect backdrop to ‘Romeo and Juliet’ as Shakespeare’s star-crossed lovers play out their tale in one of the most memorable and magical evenings of the summer. The woodland walks will be illuminated with candles and fairy lights adding to the enchantment of the early evening production.

The performance begins at 7pm but grounds open and hour earlier than start time for picnics. Please bring your own rugs or low backed seating.

Later in the summer, the Crags will play host to Chapterhouse once more as they perform Oscar Wilde’s classic ‘The Importance of Being Earnest.’

Tickets cost £12 for adults and £8 for concessions and children. To book, please ring Creswell Crags on (01909) 720378 or book online at See Tickets
