The Festival Players present ‘Henry V’ Exhilarating open-air entertainment for a summer’s evening!


This summer, Dorset’s rural touring arts charity, Artsreach, is delighted to present the Festival Players International for one night only. A professional theatre company delivering the best in open-air Shakespeare, The Festival Players International will bring to life Shakespeare’s most popular history play, ‘Henry V’ for its 35th year of touring.

After a rebellious and spirited youthhood, carousing in the taverns of London, Prince Hal takes on the responsibility of Kingship and leads his troops, of low and high station, across the channel to do battle with the French at Agincourt. Follow the charismatic King Henry the Fifth in this stirring tale of leadership, bravery, humour, and love.

The Festival Players Theatre Company is now well established as a professional company delivering the best in open-air Shakespeare. It continues to grow in reputation internationally, touring as an all-male rep company. The Festival Players’ patron is Dame Judi Dench, and the company is committed to presenting the very best in touring theatre, providing an accessible and enjoyable evening for all types of audiences.
