heading title of main article

Our immensely popular 2012 theatre season is drawing to a close with almost all remaining shows having sold out. Do check with our Box office for returns.  It is the last chance to catch the witty sparring in The Taming of the Shrew and dark abuse of power in Richard III.  Much to our delight Twelfth Night will be transferring to the Apollo Theatre in the West End from 2 November.

Relive the magic of Much Ado About Nothing, Doctor Faustus and All's Well That Ends Well (all 2011) in a cinema near you. Our cinema series will be screened across the UK, Australia and New Zealand from 26 September and USA from 11 October. 

Our Education events programme, Merry Meetings continues to inform and inspire through pre and post show talks and platform discussions with actors.  This month we will be celebrating the 200th performance in the renowned Read not Dead series of ‘plays with scripts’ with Philip Massinger’s A New Way to Pay Old Debts.

This half term join us in the Exhibition as we plant a spooky Halloween pumpkin patch. Draw your own design or watch the sword fighting and other demonstrations on offer. Suitable for all the family.

To celebrate Halloween and the changing of the seasons we are giving away a coveted replica skull for you to play your very own Hamlet with. See below on how to enter.
