This play is one of Shakespeare’s most famous works and the Festival offers the chance to see this classic in the magical setting of the walled garden at Grappenhall. The Merchant of Venice is a 16th century comedy spanning themes of love, money, prejudice and social injustice and includes famous scenes featuring Portia and Shylock.

Shakespeare’s great courtroom drama is gripping, funny, romantic and thought-provoking. Guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat!

Early booking of this event is advised due to the popularity of the comedy and also the setting. Doors open at 6pm for 7pm show.

The event is not suitable for children under 10 years old.

Bring your own seating and a picnic; the Friends of the Walled Garden will be serving hot drinks during the interval.

Tickets are £12. Here’s how to find Grappenhall Walled Garden, WA4 3EA.
