50 Years of Brownsea Open Air Theatre
One of the biggest theatrical projects in the south, our annual production is set on The National Trust's Brownsea Island in Poole Harbour, Dorset. These beautiful surroundings make for a wonderful show and an exciting evening of traditional Shakespeare.
Patrons ferry to the island from Poole Quay. The theatre tickets include the return fare and the island landing fee, so nothing else to pay to enjoy a summer's evening with us.
For those who don't take picnics - and those who do - snacks and hot/cold drinks are served by the BOAT Catering Team in the marquee on Church Field, before the play and during the interval.
