Theatre & Films
Shakespeare's Rose Theatre
A full-scale pop-up version of the Elizabethan playhouse is being recreated in the Oxfordshire UNESCO World Heritage Site’s historic grounds for a nine-week season showcasing four of Shakespeare’s greatest plays.

Inspired by the famous London Rose Playhouse built in 1587, 12 years prior to The Globe, Shakespeare’s Rose Theatre will house an audience of 900, with 560 seated on three tiered balconies around an open-roofed courtyard with standing room for 340 ‘groundlings’.

Visitors will be able to see revived productions of A Midsummer Night’s Dream and Macbeth as well as new productions of Romeo & Juliet and Richard III all performed in the 13-sided theatre - complete with an Elizabethan village.

The village will feature ‘wagon’ performances of Elizabethan-style entertainment, including comic mini-plays, speeches and medieval musicians as well as food and drink.
