Open-air Experience

Romeo & Juliet at Doddington Hall

Aug 29
29th August 2023

Join Doddington this summer for the timeless and classic love story, Romeo and Juliet.

With a history stretching back to William Shakespeare himself The Lord Chamberlain’s Men present this great play as he first saw it, in the open-air, with an all male cast and Elizabethan costumes, music and dance.

Packed with memorable poetry, devastating twists and turns, and burning passion this is without doubt the greatest love story ever told. A play about the power of true love, the extraordinary sacrifices we make for it and the futility and devastating consequences of entrenched conflict.

Bring a chair and a picnic (or order a Doddington afternoon tea picnic box) and prepare to be entertained and transported. Book early to avoid missing out!

“A pair of star-crossed lovers take their life”

Two youths from Verona – Romeo and Juliet – meet by chance and instantly fall in love.

Members of two warring families, the Montagues and Capulets, they realise they cannot be together. But driven by love they risk everything and marry in secret. No sooner are they married than misfortune intervenes and, despite efforts to outrun it, their families’ ancient feud catches up with them and brings about their tragic end.

Doddington Picnic Boxes

Delight in a delicious selection of dainty finger sandwiches, Hambleton’s rare breed pork sausage roll, freshly baked fruit scones with clotted cream and strawberry jam as well as an array of famous Doddington sweet treats and an elderflower pressé.

There’s something to suit the whole family with traditional, gluten-free and children’s afternoon tea menus, and you can even add a bottle of Prosecco too!
