Bard in the Botanics hosts a range of productions every summer in the beautiful and historic surroundings of Glasgow's Botanic Gardens.

As You Like It
Jun 26, 2019 – Jul 13, 2019
Shakespeare’s most romantic comedy makes a welcome return to Bard in the Botanics in this brand new production. Full of warmth, wit and a very modern approach to love, this is the perfect treat for a summer’s evening.

Henry V
Jun 27, 2019 – Jul 13, 2019
A brand new production of Shakespeare’s brilliant meditation on war, and leadership, and the act of ‘playing’ itself. In the gorgeous surroundings of the Kibble Palace Glasshouse, six actors tell the story of this famous King; a story full of heroism and sacrifice, as a great man ruthlessly pursues the victory he will stop at nothing to achieve.

Hamlet
Jul 18, 2019 – Aug 3, 2019
Shakespeare's most human and heartfelt tragedy is both an exciting thriller and a stunning exploration of grief, love and family that takes an audience on an exciting journey to the very core of what it means to be alive.

Richard III
Jul 18, 2019 – Aug 3, 2019
This new production of the tale of Shakespeare’s gloriously terrifying malcontent is performed by a cast of four actors. By turns, thrilling and horrifying, and shot through with the blackest of humour, this production is essential viewing for today’s turbulent times.

Please note that the performances are outdoors, subject to cancellation in the event of adverse weather. Seating is not provided for this performance - stools are available for hire or audiences may bring their own seating.

While we take every opportunity to ensure the details for Bard in the Botanics 2019: Muse of Fire are accurate, we always advise that you contact the event organiser before setting out for the event to avoid disapointment.
