THE WINTER’S TALE with The Festival Players

Posted by jordan keogh on 07 June 2018 Return to News & Events

On Thursday 28th  June you can picnic on the beautiful lawns of the historic Royal York Crescent (BS8 4JX) communal gardens in Clifton and then be entertained by the excellent Festival Players in their spirited adaptation of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale.

“Sparked by an obsessive envy, Leontes, King of Sicilia, sets in motion a train of events which affects 2 kingdoms and 2 generations. Jealousy and joy, revenge and romance, loss and discovery, remorse and revelry, lead to an amazing revelation”

As always with this company the addition of song and music and a little skilful editing combine to make it accessible for everyone.

Gates open from 6.00pm (Upper Lawn) for picnics; bring your own food, drinks, seating, rugs etc. Play starts at7:30pm on the Lower Lawn.

Wheel chair access available from the York Gardens entrance (BS8 4LN)

Tickets priced, £15 for Adults, £9 for Under 16’s.
