FREE outdoor theatre for all ages comes to Bridgford Park

Inspiring free outdoor theatre is set to entertain residents and visitors to Bridgford Park in West Bridgford on Saturday 21 August, with two performances perfect for all ages.

Guests can enjoy Quantum Theatre’s ‘The Tale of Peter Rabbit and Benjamin Bunny’ from 2pm to 3.30pm and ‘A Midsummer Night’s Dream’ from 6pm to 8pm, including intervals.

 

Event organisers Rushcliffe Borough Council are ensuring the event acknowledges the recent lifting of COVID-19 restrictions but will still provide hand sanitisation stations.

Families and individuals are invited to bring picnic chairs and snacks to each showing so they can sit back, relax and enjoy the productions with a food and drink outlet, sweet stall and bar available on site at the park.

The authority’s Cabinet Portfolio Holder for Communities and Climate Change Cllr Abby Brennan said: “We’re delighted to be able to welcome back residents and visitors to some fantastic planned events at Bridgford Park.

 

“It’s great that we can host these well-known theatrical performances so that families and individuals can enjoy a leisurely Saturday afternoon in the heart of West Bridgford.

 

“Our outdoor cinema events in 2019 proved to be very popular, so we hope all can join to watch these exciting family favourites, aware that many are still being cautious in line with central government advice.

 

“All we need now is the weather to give us a helping hand for all to enjoy the events.”

 

The performances will still go ahead in any inclement weather, so event goers are advised to dress for the great British summer!
