A Midsummer Night's Dream: Chapterhouse Theatre

Bring a picnic and a blanket along to the Cathedral this summer

Shakespeare’s best-loved romantic comedy

Let yourself be whisked away on a thrilling journey to the most magical of forests and meet star-crossed lovers, playful fairies, and hilarious travelling players. Beautifully designed Elizabethan costumes, a wonderful musical score and enchanting woodland creatures come together to make this an evening of unmissable summer garden theatre, and one of Chapterhouse’s most popular shows.

This is the second year Rochester Cathedral has hosted Chapterhouse Theatre. Don’t miss out on seeing this brilliant play in the spectacular setting of the Rochester Cathedral gardens.
