Wedding Open Day

18 February 2013

Find out more about weddings and civil partnerships at the RSC's Wedding Open Day, Sunday 24 March, 10am - 5pm

Stratford-upon-Avon's Royal Shakespeare Company (RSC) will be holding a Wedding Open Day at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre on Sunday 24 March between 10am – 5pm.

The RSC is fully licensed for marriage ceremonies, civil partnerships and renewal of vows. The Wedding Open Day will be an opportunity for couples to find out more about how they can celebrate their special day in the dramatic surroundings of the Company's theatres.

Couples will be able to take a guided tour of the licensed spaces where their ceremony can be held, including the Swan Theatre which holds just over 400 people. There are another ten elegant licensed areas, including the intimate Swan Reading Room for 12 guests, or, for those with a head for a heights, the top of the RSC's 100 foot Tower.

The Wedding Open Day will also feature on-stage talks and demonstrations from a selection of the RSC's suppliers, including photographer, florist and patisserie. Event Managers will be on hand to lead guided tours, and discuss everything to make that special day run perfectly.

Lucy Robertson, RSC Hires Manager, said: 'What better place to enjoy your special day than at the Royal Shakespeare Company in Stratford-upon-Avon. Theatres are full of magic and romance, making the RSC ideally suited for a wedding or civil partnership. The Wedding Open Day will show how we can work with you to make your dreams a reality.'

Pre-registration for the event is recommended, although not essential, by emailing The first 50 pre-registered attendees will receive a goody bag on the door, and all pre-registered attendees will be entered into a prize draw for a L'Occitane hamper.
