SHAKESPEARE IS COMING TO OWLPEN

This year we are celebrating the 400th anniversary of the passing of the Bard all across the country. Here at Owlpen the date 1616 has double significance as it's the time when the house was extended and improved by Thomas Daunt.  Just like the text of shakespeare's plays, since then nothing has changed here at Owlpen Manor.

On July 19th and 20th we'll be celebrating the anniversary by hosting THE COMEDY OF ERRORS in partnership with the Gloucerstershire Youth Players, known throughout the country as the UK's only youth theatre company dedicated to Shakespeare.  They are touring the Cotswolds this summer to bring Shakespeare to stately homes and theatres across the region.

At Owlpen we are offering the chance to watch the play in the manor gardens, while dining on a range of fabulous picnics, created specially by Woodruffs Organic Cafe to mark the event.  They range from £15 to £45 per head, and can be pre-booked along with tickets from the estate office.

Bring chairs and picnic rugs!
