BOAT 2019: Richard III

BOAT is one of the biggest theatrical projects in the south, annually performing on the National Trust’s Brownsea Island in Poole Harbour, Dorset. These beautiful surroundings make for a wonderful show and a fantastic evening of traditional Shakespeare.

The company is professionally run, but all of those involved with BOAT, whether on stage, backstage or front-of-house are unpaid volunteers. Since 1964 BOAT has involved around 1,500 volunteers, entertained more than 100,000 people and raised around £250,000 for the National Trust.

Every production takes many months to prepare each year, but it is an experience that the cast, crew and audience remember for a long time, and relish coming back to year after year. Maybe you will be part of BOAT 2019. We wish you the best!
