This is open-air theatre, what happens if it rains?
Please refer to our Terms & Conditions, which include our wet-weather policy.
Can we bring a picnic?
Yes - it's part of the fun! However, as GSC are responsible for what alcohol is consumed on site, therefore we kindly request that you only consume drinks purchased from our on site bar.
We have small children, will the performances be suitable for them?
We believe that it is crucial for children and young people to see live theatre, so our productions are always made suitable for all ages. (If you have very young children (4yrs and under) you may wish to consider how well they can concentrate for two and half hours).
Is there a bar?
Yes. There will be a bar serving beers and wine, hot chocolate and soft drinks. Apart from flapjacks, crisps and chocolate there will be no food on sale.
Is seating provided?
Yes. We provide seating for our audiences, set out in a theatre style, subject to availability.
Is the seating reserved?
No. Seating is unallocated. Once you have booked your ticket, this guarantees you a seat, but we do not reserve a seat number for you. Simply turn up and choose your seats when you arrive. The earlier you arrive, the more choice you have.
What if the seats are sold out?
If the seating is all sold out for a particular performance, our Box Office will let you know.
Are there toilets?
Are dogs allowed at the performances?
We regret that only disability dogs are allowed to attend the performances. Please be aware there may be effects, amplified music and gunshots in the production.

No. The taking of photographs and videos is strictly prohibited.
Is the dialogue updated, or is it Shakespeare’s
The performance will always be Shakespeare’s original text and not modernised, although the setting of the play might well be modern. Productions have been set in the 1790s, 1920s, 1930s and 1960s for example.
