Celebrating #Shakespeare400 in Style!

The HandleBards: Titania - A Midsummer Night's Dream
On the 23rd of April, it’s the 400th anniverary of Shakespeare’s death! To commemorate the life of the greatest playwright that ever lived, we’re teaming-up with Sue James Catering for our final ever UK performance of A Midsummer Night’s Dream, which has been touring the globe for the past twelve months.

The performance will begin at 7.30pm, and will take place in the stunning Chapter Hall of the Museum of The Order of St John in Clerkenwell, on the site of the former office of the Elizabethan Master of the Revels – the location at which Shakespeare’s plays would have first received the right to be performed.

Enjoy a beautiful British supper between acts, prepared especially by Suzanne James of the renowned East Dulwich Supper Club. Pre-booking for food is essential.

Non-food tickets are also available for the performance, and there will be a cash bar at the venue for drinks during the performance.

Find out more details of the menu below, and don’t miss this final chance to join us for A MidSupper Night’s Dream!

    Sounds like fun! Is it possible to bring own food as, though good, menu doesn’t cater for vegetarian needs?
    What is ticket cost with/without food?

      Hi Greta! Thanks for your note – we’ll check with Suzanne as to whether it might be possible to provide a vegetarian option for food, as unfortunately, on this occasion, it’s not going to be possible to bring your own. We’ll get back to you with a definitive answer as soon as we can! The HandleBards x
