The Merrymakers

“If music be the food of love, play on!” - Orsino, Twelfth Night (Act 1, Sc 1)

With music featuring in almost all of Shakespeare’s plays, it created an entertaining and vibrant means of storytelling to capture an Elizabethan audience.

Join acclaimed performer and provocateur Jennifer Reid, and her invited guests, Loris & The Lion, and Bridget Slater for an evening of open-air Folk Music and song.

The Sir Ken Dodd Performance Garden will come alive with The Merrymakers, as Shakespeare North Playhouse celebrates musical storytelling and brings you some of the best contemporary folk singers and performers.
