About

The Lord Chamberlain’s Men invite you to join them this summer for Shakespeare’s brilliant tragedy, Macbeth.

Emerging victorious and decorated in war Macbeth receives a thrilling pronouncement from three weird sisters who prophesy he will one day be King of Scotland. Overcome by ambition and driven on by his powerful wife Macbeth murders the king and sets in motion a terrible sequence of events from which there is no turning back.

"By the pricking of my thumbs,
Something wicked this way comes"

A play of supernatural magic, vaulting ambition and an examination of the dreadful consequences of the insatiable lust for power. With Shakespeare’s most chilling power couple and truly stirring poetry this stunning play will keep you gripped.

"It will have blood, they say; blood will have blood."

Pack your chairs and picnics and spend a glorious summer’s evening watching this breathless and brilliant tragedy.

Performed in the open air, by an all-male cast with Elizabethan costume, music and dance, this is undoubtedly one of the hottest tickets of the summer.

Luxury picnics £50 designed for two;  pre-order your Garden Gourmet Hamper available for collection on the night at Flora's Temple in the garden.
