Shakespeare on the Beach returns to Margate this Summer

Changeling theatre company returns for Shakespeare on the Beach

Shakespeare on the Beach returns to Margate this Summer with A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Gothic fantasy meets Changeling theatre’s signature cheekiness for a funny, fantastical feast for the senses that will delight audiences of all ages.

On Midsummer’s night, four young lovers find themselves in an enchanted and mysterious forest, ruled by prying pixies and feuding fairies. The Fairy King and Queen are at war and keen but clueless amateur actors Bottom, Quince and friends are putting on a play.

Mischievous fairy Puck is up to no good, playing tricks on them all in a magical comic tale where the course of true love is well and truly scuppered…

A Midsummer Night’s Dream comes to Margate beach on Saturday, July 24 at 7.30pm.

Blankets aren’t permitted in the enclosed area. Customers should bring their own chairs. Alternatively, deckchairs will be available for hire at £3each (payable to the attendant on the day).

  1. Really who is going to pay that amount to sit on the beach to watch shakespeare with no loos and most probably others running around having fun. And have they got licence to operate from TDC. Sounds like a nite of problems to me

    • Maybe people with a bit of culture?
      Probably the same people who have supported it every year without there being problems.
      Presumably people who can spell complicated words, like night 🤔

    • A couple of years ago there was an evening of Opera on Ramsgate’s beach. It was terrific, and well attended.

  2. You’ve basically described Shakespeare’s Globe theatre Chris. The big man would probably approve of all the chaos and tomfoolery of a midsummer night’s dream taking place in the midst of Margate Main Sands. Sounds fun! But yeah, don’t drink too much prosecco or you’ll spend most of the performance looking for somewhere to go to the loo.
