Shakespeare comes to the Fellows' Garden

Actor playing Henry V

The Cambridge Shakespeare Festival is staging one of Shakespeare's most rousing and action-packed plays, Henry V, in the Fellows' Garden at King's.

The play follows the young Henry V on his campaign to conquer France, and culminates in the Battle of Agincourt (1415). It contains some of Shakespeare's most famous speeches, such as 'Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more' and 'We few, we happy few, we band of brothers.'

The performances take place from 2 to 21 August. As well as enjoying the play, you have a rare chance to stroll around the Fellows' Garden, which is normally closed to the public.

You can buy tickets from the Cambridge Shakespeare Festival website, or on the night from the gate to the Garden. Tickets cost £14 (£10 concessions) and performances start at 7.30pm. The gate to the Fellows' Garden is on Queen's Road, opposite the back of the College.
