Shakespeare in the park

Oddsocks Theatre return to Middleton Park on Tuesday (2 July 2019) for another night of family fun, breathing new life into Shakespeare’s A Midsummer’s Night Dream.

From the company who brought you “bonkers and brilliant” Romeo and Juliet and “downright funny” Macbeth. Experience A Midsummer Night’s Dream as this Summer’s festival of music, magic and mayhem!

Four young lovers run away to a summer festival in the woods to escape the stress of parental expectations at home. Before long they unwittingly find themselves the subjects of tricks, played on them with hilarious results. Add to that a troupe of amateur actors hired to play at the festival and you have the perfect recipe for an evening of hilarious family entertainment.

As usual the play will be staged outside on the bandstand by the visitor centre. Alan Shaw from Friends of Middleton Park (FOMP) who are staging the free event said:

“We are looking forward to welcoming you to the park again for another memorable night with Oddsocks.
It all starts at 7pm but please get here in plenty of time, maybe come with a picnic. Also don’t forget your chairs or blankets as we don’t have many spare … and maybe an umbrella. The Visitor Centre will be open for hot and cold drinks, cold sandwiches, cakes and lots, lots more. Toilets are also available!”

The number 13 bus stops by the park entrance. Car parking is available near the bowling green, at the Leeds Urban Bike Park and at John Charles Centre for Sport. If parking on local streets please show consideration for residents.
