South Swindon Parish Council have launched a brand-new season of outdoor theatre experiences for the summer. Theatre at the Bowl will take place from Saturday 10 July – Saturday 20 August, from Town Gardens Bowl.

Plenty to choose from

Theatre at the Bowl will host a variety of professional touring theatre companies from across the UK. All will be looking to inspire and entertain audiences of all ages, through a range of outdoor productions. The season opens with BlackBox Theatre’s production of Noël Coward’s timeless classic, Blithe Spirit, on Saturday 10 July, from 7pm.

Cllr Neil Hopkins of South Swindon Parish Council said: “We are delighted to be hosting such a fantastic variety of professional theatre companies. We will be welcoming back audiences safely to Town Gardens Bowl for a summer of accessible and unforgettable outdoor theatre experiences. We hope this will be the beginning of a much-loved addition and a firm fixture for summer here at Town Gardens, amongst other future events.”

Saturday 17July will see a story of the old world, with knights, wizards, mist and magic come to life. The Last Baguette present King Arthur – a fun and farcical family adventure, from 2:30pm and 7pm.

King Arthur

Get your glad rags on for an outdoor adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald’s The Great Gatsby. Presented by Heartbreak Productions and the Nick Carraway quartet. This jazz evening marks 100 years since prohibition! It’s on Friday 30 July, from 7:30pm.

An afternoon of enchanting storytelling full of magic, puppetry, and music is guaranteed on Saturday 31 July, as Heartbreak Productions invite you to Wonder with Grimm, entering into the fantastical world of the Brothers Grimm – with altered endings and modern twist, performed in the round, from 3pm.

Friday 19 & Saturday 20 August from 7pm will be packed with live music, uproarious comedy and heartbreak. The Duke’s Theatre Company delivers the classical text of Romeo & Juliet with modern clarity and relevance. This is a story as current today as it was when it was first performed over 400 years ago. Be prepared to fall in love all over again.

Theatre at the Bowl opens on Saturday 10 July and runs until Saturday 20 August.
