A Midsummer Night
Jun 22 @ 7:00 pm – 9:30 pm

Celebrate Midsummer in style by joining us on Saturday 22 June at 7pm for A Midsummer Night in SE19 at St John’s, Upper Norwood. The evening starts out at 7pm with some fizz and (top secret) entertainment before presenting some classic Shakespeare as you’ve never experienced the Bard before. Actor Tama Matheson will treat us to a witty and entertaining 90-minute modern retelling of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream that’ll have you rolling in the aisles.

The London Mozart Players will provide a shimmering musical backdrop under the baton of Howard Shelley, performing Mendelssohn’s incidental music to the original play. Be prepared for a night full of drama, music and poetry that may change your view on Shakespeare, as well as classical music, for ever. Please note that this performance is not suitable for children under 16.

100 early bird tickets (15% discount on all prices) are on sale right now, so get them while you can!
