Four Forty Theatre are back with a British Summertime Shakespeare Double Bill! Twelfth Night and A Midsummer Night’s Dream, both performed by only four actors in forty (ish!) minutes each! 

Experience the hilarity of two of the Bard’s best comedies condensed into short, side-splitting shows. In a mere 40 minutes each, they distil the essence of Shakespeare's masterpieces into uproarious performances.

Prepare for an unforgettable night of laughter and with a British Seaside Twist! 2024 will see the company reach more people than ever before and they invite you to join them on their biggest tour to date!

  • Show time - 18.00
  • Gates open at - 17.00


Please bring your own chairs, blankets and picnics.

Light refreshments are available at the venue with alcoholic and non alcoholic drinks on offer alongside hot and cold snacks. Guests are welcome to bring their own refreshments as well.

The performance will continue despite any great British summers attempts to ruin it! Umbrellas are not encouraged as they ruin sight lines but mac's and raincoats are just as fetching! In the event of lightning that poses a threat to safety the event may be cancelled. 

“Four Forty Theatre proves that there doesn’t need to be a high value production to provide high quality entertainment!” 


“Their inimitable style and charisma definitely set them apart as one of the most playfully ambitious theatre groups around!”


“This is an exceptionally special, hilarious, speedy tour of two of Shakespeare’s arguably greatest plays!
