Shakespeare hath ended!

This Summer, we transformed 32 of our pub gardens into the perfect setting for open-air Shakespeare with a mammoth 47 performances from July until September, our biggest year yet!

In 2019, Open Bar brought you The Merry Wives of Windsor and Romeo & Juliet for shows full of fun, laughter and sword-swinging action.

Both our tours have now finished, but watch this space to see what we have in store 2020. Shakespeare will returneth!

THE Merry wives of windsor

(NOW ENDED!)

Falstaff: a character so great, Queen Elizabeth herself commissioned a new play all about him. What followed was 'The Merry Wives of Windsor': an epic farce, a chaotic comedy, a multi-prank fiesta perfect for a night in a pub garden.
