A Midsummer Night's Dream in
The Collector Earl's Garden
at Arundel Castle

People taking their seats

Friday 25 & Saturday 26 August 2017

We are delighted to announce we will be performing William Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Arundel Castle

Arundel Castle
Set high on a hill in West Sussex, this great Castle commands the landscape with magnificent views across the South Downs and the River Arun. Built at the end of the 11th Century it has been the family home of the Dukes of Norfolk and their ancestors for over 900 years.

The Collector Earl's Garden

The Collector Earl’s Garden
The garden has been conceived as a light-hearted tribute to Thomas Howard, 14th Earl of Arundel (1585-1646), known as 'The Collector'. The grand centrepiece is the rock work 'mountain' planted with palms and rare ferns to represent another world, and supporting a green oak version of 'Oberon's Palace', a fantastic spectacle designed by Inigo Jones for Prince Henry's Masque on New Year's Day 1611 - only five years after A Midsummer Night's Dream was first presented. The garden is an evocation of a Jacobean garden, not a re-creation. In the words of its brilliant and original designers 'it aims to stand alone, to be pleasing, timeless and memorable'.
