An exciting new phase of development is now underway at Lancaster Castle.

Please note that during this period there will be no permanent café facility available at the Castle and the ticket office will be relocated to A-Wing. Guided tours and events will continue as scheduled.


The Taming of the Shrew

The Taming of the Shrew 16th April 2018 - 28th April 2018

After the success of 2017's promenade production on 'The Two Gentlemen of Verona' at Lancaster Castle, Attic Door Productions are back once again bringing Shakespeare to life in an all new promenade production of William Shakespeare's The Taming of the Shrew  


"We will have rings and things and fine array"      

Let us transport you to the high society halls of Edwardian England as you follow the trials and tribulations of two sisters as they navigate the pitfalls and protocols of modern matrimony.

As the lords of the manor attempt to tame their women as well as their hearts the servants below stairs become embroiled in the confounding contrivances their masters and mistresses have put in place to win the hearts of the ones they desire.

Who will end up being the winner in this game of love?

"If I be waspish, best beware my sting"
