Sunset Festival

This event has ended.

A Midsummer Night's Dream, performed by 440 Theatre, is the highlight of our Sunset festival. They will be joined by Merry-Go-Round Storytelling, who will bring classic tales to life.

After touring the UK all summer, 440 Theatre are returning to Whitehill & Bordon with a raucous rendition of A Midsummer Night's Dream!

Four actors wrestle with Shakespeare's most famous comedy and serve it up into an hour-long performance! With music, laughter, and a suitcase full of ridiculous props and costumes, come and experience Shakespeare in a way that only 440 Theatre can deliver! Suitable for all ages!

Allow yourself to get immersed in nature and let your senses be enchanted within the heart of the Bordon Inclosure.

A joint venture between Phoenix Arts and Deadwater Valley Trust, two local charities, and they promise to provide an unforgettable experience filled with theatre, music, storytelling and delicious food cooked on an open fire. 

Why don't you set up a blanket or chairs and relax as you soak up the natural beauty of the woodland.

The freshly cooked food from the open fire will be the icing on the cake! Warm and hearty, perfect for a late summer supper outdoors and can be served alongside a cooled drink from The Phoenix Tavern.

Whether you're a lover of the arts, music, or simply want to escape the hustle and bustle of daily life and reconnect with nature, this is the event for you. So, grab your family and friends and prepare for an unforgettable experience!

Please be aware that the sun will set during the event, so you might want to bring a torch to light your way home.

Please note a wet weather plan is available if required.
