The Dell is situated on the banks of the River Avon, in Avonbank Gardens, near Holy Trinity Church. All performances are free and there is no need to book, but we advise you to come along 10 - 15 minutes before the start of the performance. Performances last approximately 1 hour 30 minutes and please feel free to bring a picnic and rug.
