Shakespeare at Swinhay - As You Like It : 7:30pm

Professional theatre company Rain or Shine, hailed by ‘The Stage’ as “one of the best companies touring open air theatre" are set to delight family audiences once again this summer in the stunning grounds of Swinhay House to bring you with their production of Shakespeare’s perfect pastoral play – As You Like It.

"All the world's a stage..."

Join one of Shakespeare's most famous heroines, Rosalind, as she makes her way in a world full of power, jealousy and tyranny.
