About Us

The Pantaloons – The Merry Wives of Windsor

Wednesday 24th July, 7pm (Gates open 6.15pm)

"Wives may be merry, and yet honest too!"

Sir John Falstaff, everyone's favourite Shakespearean sleazeball, has fallen on hard times. In order to fix his finances he plans to seduce the wives of two wealthy merchants. But, wise to his wily ways, the ladies take the opportunity to punish Falstaff by playing a series of hilarious tricks on the nincompoop knight.

Expect silly slapstick, abundant anachronisms and memorable music nestled amongst Shakespeare's poignant poetry as the critically acclaimed Pantaloons put their own innovative and interactive spin on this classic comedy.

- Adults – £17
- Bishop's Palace Members – £15
- Child – £10

Remember to bring something to sit on. The Bishop's Table will be open throughout the performance, you are welcome to bring you own picnic as well.

The performance will go ahead even if it is raining so, please dress for the weather on the day.

Please do not bring large beach-style parasols as these will block people's view of the performance.

This event is a fundraising event on behalf of The Palace Trust, the charity whose purpose is to conserve The Bishop's Palace and its story as a place of enjoyment and reflection for the benefit of all.  The Palace Trust gets no statutory funding so the cost of maintaining the Palace is met entirely by grants, by visitor income and special events.
