Stamford Shakespeare Season 2020

June - September 2020


The Stamford Shakespeare Company present an annual season of plays in June, July and August at Rutland Open Air Theatre in the grounds of historic Tolethorpe Hall, Little Casterton PE9 4BH, just off the A1, two miles north of Stamford.


The plays for 2020 are Romeo & Juliet, Love's Labour's Lost and Oscar Wilde's The importance of being earnest.


A stage set in an enchanting glade, a company of fine actors, stunning sets and gorgeous costumes, the magic of Tolethorpe begins the moment you take your seat on a warm summer evening in one of Europe's finest open air theatres.


Comfortably seated and protected from occasional summer showers, beneath a permanent all-weather canopy it's the perfect setting to enjoy the works of the world's greatest playwright. Enjoy all the comfort of an indoor theatre with the charm of an open air setting in what everyone calls the complete Tolethorpe Experience.


There is nothing more enjoyable for a theatre visit on a summer evening than a picnic on the lawn... or a pre-performance meal in one of the two elegant restaurant rooms in the historic hall... a quiet drink in the sun-filled, spacious bar... or a stroll through the delightful garden where others have walked for the past 1000 years.
