Best Bits

Illyria return to Westminster Abbey this summer with their unique open-air theatre experience, a production of Shakespeare’s comedy A Midsummer Night’s Dream on 25 and 26 August.

Join the production for side-splitting fun and mayhem as the Mechanicals create their second play – with your help! Packed with silly props, sillier costumes and an eye-popping finale, this theatrical dream like no other will delight the young and the young at heart alike.Five couples – three human, one fairy, and one mythical – find their relationships tested, intimately probed and indecently exposed when a troupe of amateur theatricals bumble into the forest to rehearse a play.

  • One of Shakespeare’s best comedies in the open air
  • A great night of entertainment
  • Fantastic production company and cast
  • Picnic in the summer evening air
  • Fun for the family
