Much Ado about Nothing

Much Ado about Nothing



    Five actors with all manner of musical instruments present an inventive take on Shakespeare’s Much A Do About Nothing.
    This is a rip-roaring comedy of quarrels, deceptions and a frustratingly stupid man called Dogberry…
    Brought to Blackwell by the acclaimed Three Inch Fools – who have performed at over 100 different venues, to almost 35,000 people.
    With a reputation for staging innovative and vibrant productions in all kinds of grand locations, Three Inch Fools bring their talents to Blackwell, The Arts & Crafts House.
    This amazing spectacle takes place outside on Friday 28 June at 7pm.
    Blackwell will be open for picnics from 6pm.
    Please bring your own seating (camping chairs and blankets) and dress for the weather.

FREE coach parking during your visit and a further two hours FREE coach parking at Abbot Hall, to see the historic town of Kendal. Coach welcomed by a member of staff. Pre-booked catering options with reserved seating. Bookable group talks, for differing interest and knowledge levels. Early visits starting at Blackwell before we open to the general public.
