A really lovely site, a pleasure to relax in!” (Audience member)

This gem of an outdoor festival, tucked away in a secluded corner of Dean Close School, plays host to sublime jazz, classic drama, inspiring Shakespeare, colourful family entertainment, local talent and the enchanting Cinema Under the Stars; for two weeks at the end of July every summer.

Imaginative, enthralling and compelling” (Audience member)

Good company, twinkling lights in the dell, a glass of wine before the film, a hot chocolate at the end – what more could anyone want?!” (Audience member)

So why not pack a hamper, pop a bottle of sparkling wine on ice and grab yourself some tickets for the hottest festival of theatre, alfresco? It really is an enchanting place to be entertained with friends on a balmy summer’s evening.

A magical experience ALWAYS.” (Audience member)
