Welcome to Shakespeare at The George

Every year Shakespeare at The George perform one of the Bard's plays. We perform them in the open air in the Jacobean Courtyard of the George Hotel in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, England. A setting much as would have been used in Shakespeare's own time.

The productions are run by a group of Trustees and the entire cast and crew are volunteers. The performance and production is of the highest quality and you will find it easy to follow and a night to remember.

Please explore this site, where you will find some history of our past productions and information about this year's. You can book on-line and we recommend making a night of it by dining at The George where a special menu is available. You can also take a room for the night in this very historic hotel.

SaTG Trust is proud to support:

REMEMBER: A Heritage Event with Theatre Production

1914 It was Their Time 

2014 It gave Us Ours

Heritage Event

For the first half of the evening the audience will engage with local life during WW1. This will be presented as history displays, talks, interviews, stories of local people and their lives and a free leaflet summarising recent research undertaken on local life During the Great War.  

‘They’ll Never Believe Me’

For the second half of the evening Theatre Matters will present a newly devised theatre production.  Poetry and songs from the period are interwoven to tell the story from call up and thoughts on leaving home, through life in the trenches to the aftermath of war and peacetime at home. So the audience is taken on a journey with the soldiers and experiences what life was like for those left behind at home, creating a powerful Act of Remembrance.

Period refreshments will be provided.  Doors will open at 6.30pm except for Ely Cathedral at 5.30pm.
