The course of true love is anything but smooth as games of fantasy, love and dreams ensue in Shakespeare's most beguiling comedy at Montgomery Castle, perfect for a moonlit summer evening on August 17th at 7pm.

The woods outside Athens are a busy place on this magical night.

Four runaway lovers find themselves in the middle of a dispute between King Oberon and Queen Titania of the fairies, and, as if that wasn’t enough, a troupe of amateur actors are trying to rehearse a play.

Between these unlikely groups flies Oberon's chief mischief-maker, Puck, armed only with a wicked sense of humour and a love potion capable of making anyone fall for the first person they set eyes upon. What could possibly go wrong?

County Times: A Midsummer Night's Dream is coming to Montgomery Castle.

A Midsummer Night's Dream is coming to Montgomery Castle.

The event will be accessible for wheelchair users, and there will be limited seating only.

The play is organised by Montgomery Town Council and supported by the Arts Council of Wales’ “Night Out” scheme and Harrison’s Solicitors Welshpool.

Organiser Mike Mills said: “I am thrilled to be involved with this project, previous plays pre-Covid were always a great success, hopefully people will come along with their picnics and enjoy a superb night of outdoor theatre at one of the most dramatic venues in Montgomeryshire.

"There are only 150 tickets available and they are selling fast already."

Due to the castle’s location there is only limited parking, audience members are requested to park in Montgomery and walk up to the venue.

Tickets at £16 for adults and £10 for children are available online or at Bunners Montgomery or on telephone 01686 668442.
