Much Ado About Nothing

About Much Ado About Nothing

Bring your picnic at 6pm! The show starts at 7pm.

Watch Shakespeare against the dramatic back-drop of Lauriston Castle and watch the sun set behind you. Five actors, with all manner of musical instruments, present an inventive take on Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing - a rip-roaring comedy of quarrels, deceptions and a frustratingly stupid man called Dogberry…The Three Inch Fools are a five-strong troupe of actors with all manner of musical instruments, performing a highly imaginative and vibrantly musical take on Shakespeare's plays across the UK. The Fools perform Shakespeare in almost any kind of setting - castles, cathedrals, historic houses, gardens, churches, market places, village greens, an old fire station, a medieval crypt, a crowded pub and a garlic farm – all the world's a stage!

This show is suitable for all the family.

A special discount applies to both Shakespeare at the Castle performances if you book both shows:

£28 adults, £13 under-18s, £70 family (2+2), free for under-10s.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Much Ado About Nothing are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
