East London Shakespeare Festival 2024 presents an outdoor production of ‘Much Ado About Nothing’

Big Penny Social Garden 

Much Ado About Nothing - Summer 2024 Tour

East London Shakespeare Festival is heading to Big Penny Social with the sparkling family friendly rom-com 


Sun-soaked mischief & romance under the Mediterranean stars. Set against the luxurious backdrop of a modern-day Messina, this opulent tale is brimming with wit, trickery & mischief with heart coming out on top. 

With ELSF’s trademark contemporary twists and turns, high-energy party numbers and audience participation. 

ELSF launched in 2021 with a magical, riotous, sold-out production of A Midsummer Night's Dream, receiving an Off West End Award Nomination for Best Company, an 80's inspired Twelfth Night in 2022 and another Off West End Award Nomination for Best Company Ensemble for Romeo & Juliet in 2023. 

A festival vibe will be encouraged with doors opening an hour before the show, so come down for lunch! This event will be taking place in our beer garden. Tickets will gain access to the garden with tables being unreserved.

Why not sign up for a mask-making workshop run one of our in-house-party-goers (actors) - make your own mask and be part of the masked party! Mask making workshop will take place at 12.45pm for 30 minutes. Workshop suitable for ages 3+

Parental Guidance - the play features kissing. 

The show is directed by Rosie Ward.​

The producers - and co-artistic directors of the East London Shakespeare Festival – are:
