During the summer month weekends, the Royal Shakespeare Company’s outdoor theatre in Stratford-upon-Avon, The Dell, will play host to a range of lively student, community and semi-professional productions. Performances kick off on Saturday 1 June, and continue until Sunday 1 September. 

The Dell is situated on the banks of the River Avon in Avonbank Gardens, near Holy Trinity Church. Entrance is free. Visitors are invited to bring their own food, chairs or blankets. 

This year features several productions that will be captioned by The Difference Engine, a free app that enables audiences to receive captions on their own mobile devices.
