A night to remember

Dare to join us for a monstrous and mysterious evening adventure of theatrical performance, immersive film, dark sounds and blood curdling storytelling as we slice into the epic poem of Beowulf. 

Enter Hrothgar’s Mead-Hall and be transported into an otherwordly space where Grendel himself lurks in the shadows.

Become extras in ‘battles’ and take part in drinking songs and Saxon games. A stimulating break in the action will be provided by experts who will illuminate Anglo-Saxon life, culture and gold.

Fancy dress is strongly encouraged. Will you be a beastie or a baddie?

Developed with Desperate Men Theatre Co. Supported by Arts Council England.
