… what better way to welcome the island back to its marvellous theatre than with Festively Theatrical! A laid back, homely concert done by some of the islands most experienced in the amateur dramatic scene.
Around 30 separate performances made up this very special and entertaining show, featuring a wide range of Islanders with two things in common – talent and residency on our lovely Island.
“Hmm, let me think – me, a Shakespeare nut, direct one of his funniest plays in the unique setting of our historic castle, beloved of Keats – less beloved, it has to be said, of Charles I… it took me all of five seconds to say yes.”

… played at every turn for laughs, this production was truly a breath of fresh air on a warm summer’s night, made all the more enjoyable by the setting …
Packed with irony, sarcasm, and featuring a talented cast and crew, this open-air production of Shakespeare’s The Merry Wives of Windsor is a first for Carisbrooke Castle.
A look ahead to a production that features a wealth of local talent, faces well-known across the Island, drawn from a number of local companies and each bringing their skills, humour and style to the show to bring Shakespeare’s veritable feast of characters to life
