A Midsummer Night's Dream - 12 & 13 September at 7.00pmThe Charterhouse is delighted to welcome The HandleBards who will bring their production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream to Charterhouse Square in September. Since 2013, the HandleBards have clocked-up over 7000 miles by cycling around the world to perform Shakespeare. Described by none other than Sir Ian McKellen as ‘uproariously funny’, they set the world on wheels with their unique brand of extremely energetic, charmingly chaotic, environmentally friendly cycle-powered theatre.
Garden tour - Tuesday 19 September
Join Claire Davies, Head Gardener at the Charterhouse, for a rare opportunity to enter our enchanting and secret garden. Summer will once again be on the wain and September is a time of transition in the garden. There will still be colour but many of the plants and ornamental grasses will have set seed. We leave these for autumn and winter interest and for the wildlife. The garden is planned for year round interest so there is always something to catch the eye.
The garden tour is on Tuesday 19 September from 10.45 to 11.45am.For tour prices and directions on how to get to Charterhouse Square, please go to the Visit Us page. Book tickets
