The Three Inch Fools performance

The Three Inch Fools will be giving a one-off performance featuring music, drama and plenty of fun from their brand new productions of Macbeth and Much Ado About Nothing. Join us in the Walled Garden at 1.30pm. Expect a fast-paced, musically-driven performance, using all sorts of different instruments, plenty of multi-rolling and many a quick costume change along the way!

The Three Inch Fools are a five-strong troupe of actors equipped with all manner of musical instruments, performing a highly imaginative and vibrantly musical take on Shakespeare's plays.

Tickets for the performance cost £2.00 per person, children under 5 are free. The performance will last approximately 30 minutes. Please book tickets in advance, a limited number will be available on the door. The performance is in the Grade I listed Walled Garden, chairs and mats will be provided and you’re welcome to bring your own.
