Malvern Crest

Outdoor Theatre returns to Malvern


This summer, you can experience the wonderfully unpredictable nature of outdoor theatre TWICE, with performances in Victoria Park and Rose Bank Gardens. 

First, on Sunday 7 July at 4.00 pm, we welcome the Quantum Theatre's performance of The Wind in the Willows, Kenneth Grahame's well-known children's story first published in 1908.  Join Mole, Ratty and Badger on their mad-cap adventures along the riverbank in Quantum Theatre’s brand new adaptation of this family favourite - a treat for all ages!  Tickets are £11.50 for adults and £7.00 for children under 16 years of age. 

Then, why not come along to Rose Bank Gardens on Friday 23 August at 7.00 pm when we welcome back The Illyria Outdoor Open Air Theatre Company and their version of The Tempest, by William Shakespeare.  The magician Prospero is marooned on an island with his daughter Miranda.  With the assistance of a powerful air spirit he keeps in servitude, he conjures up a storm to shipwreck his enemies on the shore of the island.  Inexorably they are driven towards the centre of the island to answer to Prospero – until Prospero learns that in spite of everything Miranda has met and fallen in love with Ferdinand, the son of his enemy.  Which is greater – his thirst for revenge or his aptitude for forgiveness?  Tickets are £15 for an adult and £8 for children under 16.

For both of these events, bring a chair and a picnic, and enjoy a glorious summer’s evening watching these performances. These are undoubtedly some of the hottest tickets of the summer; book early to avoid missing out!  Click on each poster below for online booking.
