We would like to put on two performances of Shakespeare's Twelfth Night at Lyttelton Playing Fields Amphitheatre

Barnet Delivery stage

pledged of £3,685

Sorry this project was unsuccessful, we did not reach our fundraising goal.

Lyttelton Playing Fields Amphitheatre is a great venue for Shakespeare, it can seat 150 people comfortably and has fantastic natural acoustics. After a challenging year for theatre I am excited to put on a special community-focused Shakespeare performance - there will be a portion of free tickets set aside for the community. The event plans to form part of the Barnet Summer of Fun. I managed the production of Romeo and Juliet that performed three sell-out nights in 2013 and this production is by the same theatre company. Please support our crowdfunding campaign if you can - just £2 will help me to put on these performances, and hopefully summer Shakespeare can become an annual community event!

What we'll deliver:

  • Two performances of Twelfth Night

Why it's a great idea:

This will a fun performance of a great play. At a time when we have all been cooped up, it is time to enjoy a spectacle of theatre and entertainment. The venue is perfect for those who are looking to re-establish their connection to the theatre. We will sell interval drinks and create a wonderful environment.

Steps to get it done:

  • Finalise Dates
  • Secure permission from Barnet
  • sell tickets
  • arrange interval drinks
  • arrange security/ volunteer ushers
  • run event

We have done this before and it was a great success so we are looking to repeat the experience.
