This year Culture Night is on Friday September 18th, and in the year of COVID-19 restrictions, we have been pushed to “evolve” to a different kind of event!
Watch our performance event online, a one-hour version of Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream with eight actors. Previously filmed live in St Anne’s Park. See options for home activities below!
Our advanced actor training course could not perform on stage due to COVID-19, so we re-imagined the performance. We escaped from the theatre to film the actors in the park, running through fields, over castle bridges and into the lush forest where fairy magic and madness takes over. This edited version of Shakespeare’s classic focuses on the fairies and the mixed-up lovers.
Drama activities at home are suggested around the event for anyone at home who feels like getting dressed in their Fairy Best and participating in their own gardens!
DOWLOAD the fairy home activities documents below. We strongly encourage you to share your discoveries with us as per the instructions!
