Chichester Festival Theatre

Situated in the cathedral city of West Sussex between the South Downs and the sea, Chichester Festival Theatre is internationally renowned for the exceptionally high standard of its productions. Its bold thrust stage design makes it one of England’s most striking playhouses.

With its light and spacious foyers and welcoming café, bars and restaurants, all with lovely views over Oaklands Park, Chichester is one of the country’s most loved and lively theatres.

Chichester’s Festival 2018 offers a kaleidoscopic array of classics, musicals and new work, ranging from Noël Coward’s sparkling comedy Present Laughter and Enid Bagnold’s The Chalk Garden, to the musicals Me and My Girl and Flowers for Mrs Harris (both directed by Daniel Evans). There are new plays from acclaimed playwrights Charlotte Jones (The Meeting) and Laura Wade (The Watsons), alongside revivals of award-winning contemporary plays and classics: debbie tucker green’s random and generations, Michael Frayn’s Copenhagen, Mike Bartlett’s Cock and Wycherley’s The Country Wife, as well as a new family show adapted from David Walliams’s The Midnight Gang.

As always the wide- ranging programme is accompanied by talks, events and workshops for all ages.
