Visitors to Weston Park in the Midlands can tuck into a locally produced picnic at this year’s outdoor performance of Shakespeare’s romantic comedy, A Midsummer Nights Dream.

The entertaining tale of star-crossed lovers, magical potions and mistaken identity will be performed by touring group, Quantum Theatre, taking place on Saturday 27th June.

For the first time spectators can pack their picnic hampers with a selection of freshly prepared and locally sourced produce from the stately home’s recently opened Granary Farm Shop.

Sarah English, food business manager at Weston Park, is delighted to offer visitors this additional service and help promote the very best of the regions producers.

She said: “The new Granary Farm Shop will be selling a range of picnic goodies including freshly made sandwiches, crisps, pork pies, scotch eggs, homemade cakes and ice cream which play-goers can assemble themselves and enjoy before or during the performance. So bring your picnic basket and fill it with delicious goodies.

“Tickets sales are going well so we are looking forward to welcoming many visitors to this year’s enchanting play.”

The Granary Farm Shop is open all day until 6pm. Gates for the performance open from 5pm with the play beginning at 7.30pm. Rugs or low backed seats are recommended to add to the evening’s enjoyment.
Tickets cost £12 for adults, £7 for children (4-14yrs) or £26 for a family ticket comprising of two adults and two children.

The Quantum Theatre performers are renowned for their fast paced, humorous and highly energetic shows.
