in partnership with
In 2018, Dear Hunter Theatre started a fantastic partnership with our friends at Star Wing Brewery to bring the rural community of Suffolk the Redgrave "Shakesbeer" Festival. The festival is a celebration of the local community with live folk music, Starwing's top class beers and open air theatre.
We started our journey with A Midsummer Night's Dream in 2018, with Star Wing hosting an excellent beer tent with a range of their own beers, as well as food stalls and lots of good cheer. It went down an absolute storm!
In 2019, Star Wing Brewery grew massively, expanding their beer selection, selling to pubs across Suffolk and Norfolk and opening their incredible Tap Room! In amongst all of this we were lucky to be asked back for another fantastic festival, this time opening Twelfth Night, and performing amongst a host of local talent including Rust and Stardust Puppetry, Mick the Baker and the Jonny Hepbir Quartet.
Unfortunately, due to Covid-19, we were not able to carry out the exciting plans we had for Redgrave Shakesbeer Festival 2020 but watch this space as there are things bubbling away for 2021...
A Midsummer Night's Dream
We are always looking for more local people to showcase their talents in our productions! Whether you are a keen performer or musician, or would love to try your hand at building set, programming lights or ushering... the possibilities are endless!
