Synopsis

A feuding fairy King and Queen of the forest cross paths with four runaway lovers and a troupe of actors trying to rehearse a play. As their dispute grows, the magical royal couple meddle with mortal lives leading to love triangles, mistaken identities and transformations… with hilarious, but dark consequences. Shakespeare’s most famous romantic comedy will be captured live from the Bridge Theatre in London. Gwendoline Christie (Game of Thrones), Oliver Chris (Green Wing, NT Live: Young Marx), David Moorst (NT Live: Allelujah!) and Hammed Animashaun (The Barber Shop Chronicles) lead the cast as Titania, Oberon, Puck and Bottom. Directed by Nicholas Hytner, this production of A Midsummer Night’s Dream will build on the success of his immersive staging of Julius Caesar (NT Live 2018). The Bridge Theatre will become a forest – a dream world of flying fairies, contagious fogs and moonlight revels, surrounded by a roving audience following the action on foot.

THE GROSVENOR CAFE

UK and International Restaurant & Bar Design Awards-winning venue and so much more. Our combination classic & contemporary menus and a busy programme of live entertainment, evening classes and kid stuff every week mean we are a true West End hub.

We believe in equal rights for little people - especially when it comes to great food - which is why our "Kids' Menu" consists of half portions for half price from our A La Carte.

From classic toy cars to boardgames to a heaving dressing up box, we've got plenty to keep the little ones entertained while you enjoy a relaxing lunch. There's also free face painting at the weekends!

THE GARDENER

Keep it simple and do what you love

That’s pretty much what we’re all about, we’re a small team, so we keep it simple and we love what we do. We’re a family of botanists, cocktail freaks, coffee aficionados, music lovers, shoulder shufflers and hungry people who love good grub and a good bit of chat. We’ve made ourselves a little home on Ashton Lane so we can share all the stuff we love doing the most.
