When most people talk Shakespeare, they think Stratford-upon-Avon, or the Globe, or the silver-tongued enunciation of Sir Laurence Olivier. They don’t immediately conjure images of their local pub’s beer garden. But in fact, in Shakespeare’s day, the local inn yard was very often the site of the finest theatrical entertainment in the kingdom. It was the regulation of Inn Yard Theatres in London in 1574 that gave rise to the Playhouses such as the Rose, The Globe, The Swan and others, before that ‘The Pub was the Thing.’ So in this spirit we will be hosting a series of performances in some of our finest Fuller’s pub gardens.
The shows will take place in a variety of venues from mid July until mid September, so if you would like to attend any of them then please check the individual websites, by going to www.fullers.co.uk or by looking on www.eventbrite.co.uk
