Bard on the Beach continues…
For the past 22 years, the Bard on the Beach Festival has been a highlight of Vancouver’s summer season and this year is no exception. A redesigned main stage has allowed the spectacular mountains and ocean of Vancouver to play backdrop to this season’s plays. Guests have also been enjoying the newly expanded reserved seating and cushier chairs. With no need for line-ups guests have been free to relax and roam the festival grounds and enjoy one of Emelle’s Shakespeare inspired picnic baskets prior to show time. Haven’t been out to see a show yet? There is still plenty of time for you to head down to Vanier Park to check out one of this year’s featured plays: As You Like It, the Merchant of Venice, Henry VI or Richard III.
Shows run until September 24th. Visit the Bard on the Beach website for more info. To order your Bard on the Beach picnic basket please visit our website.
