This summer The Lord Chamberlain’s Men are celebrating their 15th birthday and 425 years since the original company was created.

To celebrate this special anniversary they are touring one of Shakespeare’s most popular and best-loved comedies, A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Knutsford Guardian:

Calling at 70 venues, including some of the UK’s most significant, historically important and visually stunning castles, cathedrals and stately homes over 17 weeks with more than 80 performances, the tour is one of their biggest yet.

Shakespeare’s rustic and supernatural comedy is packed with some of his most famous characters from Puck, the merry wanderer of the night, to the hilarious Bottom via the warring lovers whose true loves’ course never did run smooth.

Peter Stickney, Artistic Director, said: “To reach our 15th birthday is no mean feat.

"We work hard to bring you the best production every year but really the pleasure is ours, we feel privileged to be able to tour to the stunning locations that we tour to and meet the wonderful people that we meet on the way.

Knutsford Guardian:

"Reaching this milestone is a testament to the great work of the many actors and creatives who have worked with us, but we truly couldn’t do any of this without the support of our wonderful venues and amazing audiences who make this such a joy.

"We played to almost 30,000 people across the summer last year and we hope that this year will see us entertain even more. I really hope that you enjoy our magical production of this timeless classic and here’s to the next 15.”
