Because of the ongoing situation with COVID-19, Bard in the Botanics have taken the decision to cancel our 2020 summer season. While we are incredibly disappointed that we will not be able to share our work with audiences this summer, it is so important that everyone works together to help stem the spread of this disease. The safety and wellbeing of our audiences and all the artists who work with us has to be our priority at this time.
Bard in the Botanics receives no public subsidy so the loss of income from the summer season is a huge financial blow but the company want to do everything possible to ensure our survival. To this end, we would be grateful if our loyal audiences would consider making a donation to support the company through this difficult period.
We know that everyone is facing tough times at the moment but if you can spare anything at all, please consider donating to help us secure the future of Bard in the Botanics and make sure that when the current situation has passed, we can continue to share Shakespeare’s wonderful stories with audiences for many years to come.
Every donation, however small, will make a huge difference to us. The summer nights spent with our audiences at Bard in the Botanics are truly special and, with your help, we look forward to returning in 2021 for our 20th anniversary season.
As Shakespeare himself said – “Things at the worst will cease, or else climb upward to what they were before” – and we look forward to better times for us all.
