About A Midsummer Night’s Dream

“The course of true love never did run smooth” - Act 1, scene 1

Set beneath heritage trees within a picture-perfect Kew Gardens, this is Midsummer Night’s Dream in uniquely botanical surroundings – as twilight falls, the stage is set for Shakespeare under the stars.

This beguiling comedy of enchantment and transformation is brought to life within a dream-like woodland filled with feuding fairies, eloping lovers and a hapless troupe of actors. There’s magic in the air alongside wild thyme, oxlips, nodding violets, luscious woodbine, sweet musk roses and eglantine.

It’s an alfresco romp peppered with contemporary references. Into the mix add a spellbinding potion and a mischievous sprite for a summer night of mayhem like no other.

Does my ticket provide access to the Gardens? Entry to Kew Gardens is included in your ticket. You may enjoy the Gardens prior to your attendance of A Midsummer Night's Dream. Please show you ticket/booking confirmation upon entrance.

Food & Beverages We encourage guests to pack a picnic to enjoy during the show. Food and beverages will also be available for purchase during the evening. Please note, knives and picnic tables are prohibited.

What should I bring? It is not essential to bring anything with you, but there are a few things that may make your visit more pleasant... A raincoat in case of inclement weather. (Umbrellas cannot be used during the performance) Something cozy for when the sun sets. A picnic blanket to sit on. We advise using one with a waterproof base in case of damp ground. A portable camping chair if you prefer. Chairs over 15cm in height will be positioned to the back of the seating area so the view of other guests is not obstructed.

Are there chairs to sit on? Chairs are not supplied either by the Production Company or Venue; however, you are welcome to bring your own picnic chairs.

What if it has been raining and the ground is too wet to sit on? The show will go on, if it's safe to do so! We hope that if it has been raining, you will still join us for some fun.
