Shakespeare's most raucous comedy takes a swinging 60's turn around the gardens of Charlton Park.. bring your picnic & enjoy!

Thurs 20th - Sat 22nd June @ 7pm Sunday 23rd June @ 3:30pm --- Charlton Park in Association with the Kingsbourne Players presents “The Merry Wives of Windsor” by William Shakespeare The Summer of Love descends upon Charlton Park as Shakespeare’s naughtiest Comedy takes a 60’s spin around the lawns. Falstaff courts two wealthy wives but instead of ‘Lighting his fire’, the clued-up ladies quickly turn all lusty efforts upside-down and inside-out. This is Hippie hilarity in full flower-child technicolour, starring our talented local actors - and will include popular songs of the 60s! Our performances will take place at 7pm from Thursday 20th June through to Saturday 22nd June, with a special matinee performance at 3:30pm on Sunday 23rd. Lawns will open 1.5 hours in advance of the shows. Bring Rugs & Picnics! Set to be a rollicking good laugh, this will be a real Summer treat - and we hope you will make it along. Note: Shows in Ballroom if wet. Tickets: £12 Concs: £8 Family (2 x adults, 2 x children): £35 Bookings: 01227 831355 or
