Postponement of our summer production

It is with great sadness that the Trustees, in consultation with our Director, have decided that we have no choice but to postpone our production of Twelfth Night – there will be no Summer production this year.  

We would like to highlight that this is a postponement rather than a cancellation.  Whilst we will not be performing Twelfth Night this year, it will be next year’s show (dates for your diaries; Tuesday 22 June – Sat 3 July 2021!) – so think of it more as a dramatic pause… 

In the meantime, we wish you all the best in these uncertain times and we hope to be back in touch in the not too distant future with news about further productions.

How to get involved

Shakespeare at The George is always looking for new faces to join the company and welcomes anyone who would like to get involved, either as an actor, a director or in one of the many essential roles behind the scenes. Please email us at or come along to one of the performances and ask to speak to one of the Trustees

Supporting local theatre

The company owns a considerable amount of lighting equipment and staging, as well as a large costume collection, all of which we are able to loan out to other amateur theatre groups. In addition, The Shakespeare at The George Trust makes a number of charitable funds available to local groups and individuals to further theatre and theatre skills in the region.
