An evening of outdoor theatre with the Three Inch Fools

The Three Inch Fools are dusting down their musical instruments and hitting the road with Shakespeare’s riotous comedy, Twelfth Night.

Prepare for an evening of mischief and hilarity, as five actors present an inventive take on this rip-roaring comedy, fit for all the family. Touring the UK this summer, this Shakespearean classic will be getting the full Three Inch Fools treatment: expect fast-paced drama, endless costume changes, and much music-making along the way!

★★★★★ – “So entertaining…laugh-out-loud funny”
★★★★★ – “One of the best Shakespeare plays I’ll ever watch” – The Bristol Post
★★★★★ – “The ultimate British theatrical experience” – Hastings Independent Press

Bring your own blankets, cushions, and camping-chairs and join us at the Isle of Wight Steam Railway. Come prepared for the weather - the performance will continue come rain come shine! The performance commences at 7pm. Why not arrive early for a train ride at 17:30, then enjoy a picnic before the show starts. Our bar and refreshments will be open throughout the evening.

The Three Inch Fools

The Three Inch Fools are an innovative touring theatre company acclaimed for their fast-paced and musically driven approach to theatre. They have built a reputation for staging bold and vibrant productions - a fast-paced, musically-driven style, using all sorts of instruments, plenty of multi-roling and many a quick costume change along the way.

This summer The Fools will perform come rain come shine in the great British outdoors at over 80 different venues across the UK - castles, gardens, stately homes, historic barns, National Trust properties, village greens, churches, cathedrals, museums, arts centres, and even a royal residence or two (indeed any place where five actors and an audience can fit!). The Three Inch Fools are in their eighth year of touring, having so far performed at over 160 venues and to almost 80,000 audience members.
