2018 - Shakespeare at War and Peace

Dates & Location

Sunday 22nd July - at 2.30pm

The Grounds of Hillbark Hotel, Frankby, Wirral

2018 is inevitably likely to be a year of commemoration when the ending of the Great War is recalled and ‘the fallen’ are honoured.  In this interim year between full productions, Hillbark Players offers its own act of remembrance by offering excerpts from some of the Bard’s best known plays highlighting the effects and consequences of both War and Peace.

Performed in the grounds of the spectacular Hillbark Hotel and Spa, this event requires audience members to bring their own seating. It is an outdoor production so remember to be prepared for any weather.

Hillbark Hotel will be providing a bar service and meals can be purchased prior to the performance beginning.


All Tickets £10 in advance or £12 on the door. Under 10's go free

This is a great way to bring all the family to a magical midsummer event.  See you there
