Family Activities at the Royal Shakespeare Company

Help us to create the wedding of the year on Sunday 23 June in Stratford-upon-Avon.

From 12pm preparations will begin in Avonbank Gardens next to The Dell stage (opposite the Courtyard Theatre)

  • Create decorations
  • Write blessings for the happy couples
  • Re-discover your disco dance moves
  • Enjoy performances and live music
  • Watch a live outdoor performance of Act 4, Scene 2 of A Midsummer Night's Dream

Events and workshops will be suitable for all ages and abilities so please bring the whole family.

The performance of Act 4, Scene 2 will be followed by an open rehearsal, as our actors prepare the final act including the wedding celebrations and the famous play within a play, Pyramus and Thisbe.

Throughout the day our wedding photographer will be capturing the events and adding them to the online Midsummer Night's Dreaming community. You can also add your photos and creations by using #dream40 when uploading them to the internet.

All events are free, just turn up and enjoy the party!
