Gloucester is bunging on a motorcycling festival with a bit of culture to boot. We will be riding up to catch the matinee of Shakespeare on Saturday and check out what the local bikers have got on the slab, should be quite fun from the flyer (see the link to this "Announced" topic to view). Anyone else that wants to join in the fun and didn't know, well now you know - just do it!

Shakespeare in Gloucester
May 12, 2012
After the success of last year’s As You Like It, Newcastle’s Tantrum Theatre makes a bold return to The Shakespeare in Gloucester festival with boisterous Shakespearean farce. Leap into the chaos with A Comedy of Errors, a contemporary re-imagining of the riotous comedy about mistaken identity. Watch the joy and confusion unfold as the paths of two sets of long-separated twins finally cross and mayhem follows.
Adapted and directed by Carl Young this comedic classic is hurled into the 21st century where everyone has a mobile phone and a Facebook account; but miscommunication reigns.

There will be one performance on Friday 11th May and a Matinee and evening performance on Saturday 12th May.

This year, the evening performances continue the popular format introduced a few years ago: Friday night’s show will be presented earlier with a longer interval allowing you to enjoy a hearty “Ploughman’s Platter” served at your table.  An example the foods served are a cobb of bread, cheese, roast beef, celery, apple and pickles.
On Saturday night, a feast will be served creating an Elizabethan banquet theme and include roast meats served whole at the table for self carving with seasonal vegetables, finishing with a yummy dessert, followed by “the performance”.
A licensed bar will feature local and regional wines and a selection of beer and soft drinks to further enhance the dining experience (No BYO).

Denison Street, Gloucester
