We're bringing Shakespeare back to the Wolds!

Posted by Tracey Baty on

Following last year's successful event, we're pleased to share the news that we're bringing live theatre back to the Yorkshire Wolds with an alternative take on Shakespeare. 

Touring company 440 Theatre will revisit the brewery on 12th July to deliver a performance of Shakespeare with a difference.

As part of a double bill, the troupe of four actors will be performing A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Twelfth Night in one evening. 

“Prepare for an unforgettable night of laughter and with a British Seaside Twist!” said Wold Top director Kate Balchin. 

“Experience the hilarity of two of the Bard’s best comedies condensed into short, side-splitting shows. In a mere 40 minutes each, they distil the essence of Shakespeare's masterpieces into uproarious performances. It was a sellout success last year and we’re anticipating it will have the same appeal this year.”

440 director Dom Gee-Burch said: “Stripping the narrative to its core, we keep the essence of Shakespeare’s words alive to help his magnificent stories shine at the heart of our shows. Anarchy is equally balanced with a safe and family-friendly environment.

“Our Shakespeare Double Bills are quintessentially British in their style of comedy. It's pantomime meets theatre in the park, and we can’t wait to bring it back to the Yorkshire Wolds as part of our biggest tour to date.”

The performance will take place in the Brew Shed at the award-winning brewery that is based at Hunmanby Grange Farm near Wold Newton.

Tickets cost £16 for adults and £12 for concessions, including a pint or soft drink on arrival. Camping is also available. Doors open at 5.30 pm and the performance starts at 7 pm. Visit https://bit.ly/WTShakespeare for more information and a link to book. 

The live theatre night is one of a series of events throughout the year, including walking events, live music nights, two beer festivals, and a 10k all-terrain race in partnership with Bridlington Road Runners.
