The Merry Wives of Windsor 2021

Our 2021 production will be one of Shakespeare’s finest comedies, the wonderful The Merry Wives of Windsor to be directed by John Timewell. Performances will take place from Tuesday 27th to Saturday 31st July.

Our venue is, as always, the superb Stubbings House lawns in Maidenhead, SL6 6QL. Ticket information and booking will be announced in due course.

COVID Statement: Whilst planning our July performances, we will continue to monitor the latest recommendations and guidance for outdoor events in respect of the Covid 19 pandemic. When our production begins, we are confident that, by following the latest government and scientific advice, we will be able to provide an environment that is safe and comfortable for both performers and our audiences.

While government restrictions remain in place, we are limiting our initial ticket sales to 50% of our normal capacity. After the planned easing of restrictions on June 21st, this will be reviewed and we may make more seating available.
