Event Navigation

Forde Abbey is delighted to welcome back Folksy Theatre with a performance of Love’s Labour’s Lost in the gardens at 7pm on Tuesday 31st July.

The King Of Navarre and his lords swear off food, women, and sleep in order to study for three years. No sooner have they made their oath when the Princess of France arrives on business, with her ladies-in-waiting. How will the Kind and his Lords resolve hold up? This wonderful Shakespeare comedy is filled with Folksy’s touch of live music, audience interaction and downright silliness. Bring along your picnics, blankets and folding chairs to enjoy this wonderful open-air performance!
