The Bard's Banquet: Under the Sea


Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

A long standing festival tradition; revellers come together to eat, drink, be merry and be entertained. We know festival goers love the chance to dress up, so we want you to embrace our seafaring theme. From the sailors of The Tempest, to pirates of Pericles and shipwrecked twins aplenty The Bard gives ample inspiration. From medieval to modern show us your fanciest costumes yet.

The night will also herald the return of another Shakespeare on the River Festival tradition - The Great Shakespearean Debate. Two teams featuring local, well known personalities will attempt to persuade and sway your opinion in a Shakespearean inspired debate. With Ye Olde Rusty Rockers to fill the dancefloor and The Bards Bar selling local craft beer and wines, it is a night not to be missed. Book early for this popular event.

Tickets: All tickets $55 (includes a three course meal + entertainment)
