Why not hire a deckchair for just £3.50? Pre-book, get the best seats in the house, and be sat beneath our brand-new shelter!

10th – 21st July 2024 at The Holburne Museum, Bath.

The Garden Theatre Festival

Be immersed in the world of Shakespeare galore, Peter Pan, Sherlock Holmes, slapstick, laughter, and so much more.

Sip a cooling drink under a warm sunset and relax on your rolled-out blanket, under our brand-new covered shelter, at Bath’s only open-air theatre festival.

The Garden Theatre Festival is back in Bath for its fourth triumphant year. Now with covered seating*, we’re ready for a British summer of theatre – whatever the weather!

Running from 10th July this year’s festival will once more be in the magical gardens of The Holburne Museum on Great Pulteney Street in Bath, with the garden transformed into a beautiful outdoor theatre seating 400 guests. Complete with covered seating, deck chairs, flags, bunting, festoon lighting and a superb garden bar. Not to mention our new for 2024 – covered seating!

After bringing some of the finest national and West Country comedy, theatre and cabaret performers to delighted audiences in 2023, Bath’s Garden Theatre Festival 2024 includes some of the favourite productions from last year, along with exciting new shows and enough magical sparkle and adventure to keep the whole family entertained once more.

With a whole host of events from children’s theatre to cabaret, and slapstick to Shakespeare, there’s something for everyone. We can’t wait to see you there!

*While we do have a new shelter in place for 2024, under cover priority is given to those that have booked deckchairs. Covered space for those bringing their own blankets or seats is on a first-come, first-served basis. Not all of the audience area is covered.

Food and Drink at the garden cafe
