Petersfield Shakespeare Festival is poised to return for its 9th season with bold, live, open-air performances at an exciting new venue

By Clare Glancy & Lucy Hollis

The Petersfield Shakespeare Festival is set to transform the lockdown nightmare to a midsummer dream as it returns this July with a fittingly festive play in a perfect and magical setting.
A cast of eight promise to delight audiences with A Midsummer Night’s Dream, performed in a clearing beneath a magnificent oak tree, nestling amongst the woodland of Wylds Christmas Tree Farm, Liss from 20 – 25 July 2021.
The venue will be open early to enjoy the family-friendly festival vibe and beautiful surroundings before the show. Tickets are priced to encourage everyone to attend, and concessions are available.


Location: Wylds Farm, Warren Road, Liss, East Hampshire GU33 7DF
