While going to the theatre can be really good fun, the good weather gives us the chance to experience outdoor productions. It’s the perfect excuse to pack up a picnic and head to some of the great outdoor theatre options on offer in Nottingham.

There are plenty of places in the city centre offering outdoor theatre this summer with lots of different productions to choose from. There is everything on offer from Shakespeare to Cinderella. Not to mention a whole host of music, outdoor cinema and street food.

Here is our guide to some of the best places to catch a bit of outdoor culture

Following the success of The Tempest production last year, Lakeside and Nottingham Playhouse are joining forces again for a performance of A Midsummer’s Night’s Dream.

The performance promises to bring Shakespeare’s classic story to life with excellent performers and music. The gallery is also a short tram ride away from Beeston if you fancy a post-performance pint or two.
