Help Shakespeare write King Lear or Macbeth in our one-of-a-kind travelling solo show.

With actors all over the UK, Bard in the Yard brings theatre straight to your garden, home, patio, conservatory... or wherever you have in mind.

All the world's our stage really.

Fill out our booking form for either a home visit or for your venue and make sure you don't miss out on this 'grassroots revolution' (The Telegraph) that is 'irresistible' (The Guardian) and 'funny and moving, not to mention immersive' (The Independent).

Think takeaway, but for theatre.

Let's get creative together.

Why not get in touch to make something truly your own?

Work with our team of creative specialists to put your stamp on the productions - we are more than happy to add some chosen lines from the immortal Bard to commemorate your event, celebration, or theatrical needs and make it extra special.

Book a free 30 minute consultation session to find out how to make your ideas a reality.


Our band of Bards are spread across the UK and Scotland, and each actor performs in their local and surrounding area, thus “bringing you closer to Shakespeare” – our company ethos. Our Bards have been invited to perform at birthday parties, wedding anniversary celebrations, garden parties, hen dos, costume parties, and more. 

We look forward to keep bringing Bards to Yards.


Pick from either 'King Leonardo' or 'The Scottish Play', and enjoy our lightweight travelling show in your venue or event space. Our Bards are used to adapting to any space from London's Southwark Cathedral gardens to the Pleasance's outdoor Edinburgh Fringe stage, a cabaret, pub garden, a classic black box or a jetty. 
Get in touch for a tour pack and a chat about how we can bring a Bard to you.

Bard in the Yard is about 55 minutes long, with no interval.
It is suitable for children aged 10+.
The Bard will bring their own props to your yard and can perform in any outdoor space.
