The Old Laundry Theatre - Much Ado About Nothing

By William Shakespeare
Directed by Max Webster

Shakespeare’s Globe returns to the Lakes with a brand new production of Much Ado About Nothing. This time performed in the stunning grounds of Blackwell Arts and Crafts House

Claudio loves Hero and Hero Claudio and nothing seems capable of keeping them apart. Claudio’s friend Benedick loves Beatrice and Beatrice Benedick, but (because neither will admit it) nothing seems capable of bringing them together. Only the intrigues of a resentful prince force Benedick to prove his love for Beatrice – by killing his best friend.

Watch a short clip here of the production:


Seating is not provided. Please bring your own rugs, cushions or low-backed chairs.
Light Refreshments, hot drinks and ice-creams are available from Blackwell before the performance and during the interval but please feel free to bring your own food and drink if you wish. The performance takes place outdoors and will go ahead in all but the most extreme weather conditions.
