The Winter's Tale

  • Cogges Manor Farm Church Lane Witney Oxfordshire OX28 3LA (map)

Written by Shakespeare in his later years, The Winter's Tale is an intriguing mix of drama and comedy.

Sparked by an obsessive envy of a perceived relationship between his Queen and his oldest friend, Leontes, the King of Sicilia, sets in motion a chain of events which affect two kingdoms and two generations; there is jealousy and joy, revenge and romance, loss and discovery, remorse and revelry, and an amazing revelation.

Tremendous entertainment for a Summer evening!

Notes on Performance:

Doors open at 6pm, so why not bring a picnic and come and enjoy the beautiful surroundings before the show?
Chairs, picnics, blankets and any other low level accessories are welcome.
In case of rain, please don't bring umbrellas as they block sight-lines for other audience members. Ponchos and raincoats are just as fetching anyway, so please wear these instead! In very bad weather, the performance will be in the barns.
Refreshments will be available.

Tickets are just £14 per adult, £9.50 children (under 16).

Available online, via the Cogges website, or at the Cogges welcome desk. 10% discount on tickets available for Cogges Season Ticket holders.
