The Festival Players return to the Islands this year for another fantastic outdoor performance. Written by Shakespeare in his later years, The Winter’s Tale is an intriguing mix of drama and comedy.

Sparked by an obsessive envy of a perceived relationship between his Queen and his oldest friend, Leontes, King of Sicilia, sets in motion a train of events which affect two kingdoms and two generations; there is jealousy and joy, revenge and romance, loss and discovery, remorse and revelry, and an amazing revelation.

Why not bring a picnic and a bottle. Tremendous entertainment for a Summer evening!

Friday 10th August and Saturday 11th August at the Chaplaincy Gardens on St. Mary's. Tickets will be available from the Tourist Information Centre.

Sunday 12th August at Tresco Abbey Gardens. Contact Tresco Estate Office for more information.
