Shows for kids and adults
Taking place alongside a programme of free music, film screenings and exercise classes, the festival now gives you the chance to catch a little culture after work or before an evening out on the town with the free theatre performances.
Classic stories retold

Oedipus and Antigone
Designed to delight and entertain all who see it as part of the free theatre at The Scoop over the summer, the Ring Cycle plays are about an extraordinary cast of gods, giants, nymphs, dwarfs and humans, which reveals how mortals and immortals fell under the spell of a powerful ring, possession of which brings about the chaos and glory of absolute power.

6pm - 6.45pm - The Rhine Gold
7pm - 7.45pm - The Valkyrie
7.45pm - 8.30pm - interval
