“We are such stuff as dreams are made on”

This summer Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre will be transformed into an enchanted island, as we stage Shakespeare’s final and most magical play. Prospero, Duke of Milan, usurped and exiled by his own brother, is banished to a mystical island, accompanied by his daughter Miranda and served by his spirit Ariel and deformed slave Caliban. Prospero raises a storm to shipwreck the men who wronged him to finally take his long-awaited revenge

Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre

Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre returns in summer 2018 with three glittering new productions, children’s classic Swallows & Amazons, and Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing and The Tempest. 

Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre is one of the country’s best-loved open air theatres and regularly plays to sold out audiences across the summer.  The sounds of popping corks, picnics unpacked and happy audiences is the defining sound of Chester’s summer.

Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre is produced by Storyhouse, Chester’s award-winning cultural centre which opened in May 2017.
