The Lord Chamberlain's Men

'Open air theatre as it should be and at it's very, very best'  BBC

​In the year that marks the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare's death, The Lord Chamberlain's Men invite you to join them this summer for Shakespeare's sparkling, battle-of-the-sexes comedy, Much Ado About Nothing. Triumphant in battle, Don Pedro and his men return to Messina. The Governor, Leonato, toasts their success by throwing a masquerade ball where well-intentioned plots and evil schemes abound as enemies deceive lovers and friends trick friends in this lively summer comedy.

"Friendship is constant in all other things,
Save in the office and affairs of love."

Locked together in a 'merry war' Benedick, a confirmed bachelor and Beatrice, an avowed maid are resolutely set against marriage. However their friends have a plan. Their 'will-they-won’t-they' relationship is one of Shakespeare's funniest and most famous love stories.

"They never meet but there's a skirmish of wit between them!"

Bring a chair and a picnic and spend a glorious summer's evening watching this funny, moving and fast-paced production of one of Shakespeare's best-loved comedies. Performed in the open air, by an all-male cast with Elizabethan costume, music and dance, this is undoubtedly one of the hottest tickets of the summer.

Chichester Cathedral is located in the centre of Chichester, surrounded by lawns and minutes away from the award-winning Bishop's Palace Gardens. Much Ado about Nothing will be performed on the South West Lawn, where, as well as enjoying the performance, the audience can indulge in a splendid close-up view of the 900 year old cathedral.

The performance starts at 7.30pm. The lawn will be open for ticket holders to set up seats and picnics from 6.30pm.
