22nd and 23rd September - 7:30 - 10:00pm
SHAKESPEARE HATH RETURNED!
THIS SEPTEMBER, SOAK UP SOME SHAKESPEARE IN THE GARDEN WITH FULLER'S.
After a somewhat disrupted summer, the show must go on! Open Bar are back with "The Tempest” - a tale of betrayal, love, forgiveness and magic.
Experience Shakespeare as it was intended - informal, raucous and in a spacious pub garden with a drink in hand. Whether this will be your first, or thirty-first night of Shakespeare, you will not be disappointed.
Total isolation, a hostile environment, divisions in the royal family...these are things that are hard to imagine in 2020, but Prospero is all too familiar with them.
He is a former duke, exiled on a virtually uninhabited island in the middle of the Mediterranean for twelve years. Fortunately, all his enemies are about to sail past so he conjures a storm, wrecks their ship and leaves them separated all over his new home so he can regain his dukedom and his freedom.
It's not the greatest plan, but it's all he's got…and it all has to comply with social distancing measures!
Will he get everything he desires? Will he figure out what “one-metre plus” means? And will we all get the happy ending we so desperately need this year?
HOW WILL SOCIALLY-DISTANCED SHAKESPEARE WORK?
It goes without saying that things might look a little different from previous performances, but we guarantee it'll be just as fun and lively for all of the audience.
Firstly, we're reduced our capacity to allow for more space between each group of guests and there'll be less interaction between actors and audience.
We've introduced an Order & Pay app in a number of our pubs, meaning you can order your food and drink throughout the show without heading to the bar inside - it'll be delivered straight to you instead.
HOW ARE WE KEEPING YOU SAFE?
As in all of our pubs, there's lots of new measures to keep you as safe as can be. You'll be greeted by a dedicated host who'll ask you to fill in a super-easy online form for the Government's Track & Trace programme.
There'll be plenty of hand sanitiser, regular cleaning and one way systems where necessary.
