Plans for the Chepstow Festival (22nd June-22nd of July) are progressing very satisfactory. There will be many events staged in the Castle taking advantage of the community event canopy (which will cover 400 seated in the event of rain). When we informed a number of additional professional touring open-air theatre companies about the canopy and the available dates for performances there was 100% positive response so we now have Britain's largest festival of open-air theatre in Chepstow Castle this summer. A list of performances and dates are here revealed for the first time.
