Bristol Shakespeare Festival

Add Bristol Shakespeare Festival to your Itinerary

Bristol Shakespeare Festival


The Bristol Shakespeare Festival is annual festival taking place throughout the month of July, hosting performances and events inspired by the Bard in alfresco and unusual spaces across Bristol.

Events include:

The Handlebards: Romeo and Juliet
A riotous all-female production of Shakespeare’s famous tragedy, in their seriously silly style.

Impromptu Shakespeare at The Wardrobe Theatre
Whether you know all 37 plays – or none – this is the show for you. Join an hour of riotous fun as the cast buckle on the Bard's britches to bring you the plays he never wrote.

A Midsummer Night’s Dream at Brandon Hill
Shakespeare’s most enduringly popular comedy of love and intrigue, magic and mayhem, is brought to life by family favourites Quantum Theatre in their wonderfully funny and exuberant production of the Shakespeare classic.

Hamlet The Musical at The Room Above
Experience Shakespeare’s most famous play in its purest, most ridiculous form. The timeless story of Hamlet is retold with cheeky irreverence and boundless energy through genius rewrites of modern hits – including classics by Queen, Britney Spears, ABBA, and Elvis Presley.

Free Theatre Workshops with RSC
A free 3 hr introduction to playing Shakespeare with award winning Royal Shakespeare Company actor, Simon Trinder. The session is aimed at amateurs, student and professional actors over 17 years old.

1599: A Year in the Life of William Shakespeare
Inspired by the best-selling book by James Shapiro, this journey through 1599 shows how a single year transformed Shakespeare’s fortunes. The most fantastic, laugh-out-loud funny, illumination of Shakespeare and his plays you’re ever likely to see!
