In 17 years of Theatre in the Forest we’ve only ever had to cancel a handful of performances due to extreme weather; we carry on in rain and we also provide basic ponchos to keep you dry –  this is to substitute the use of umbrellas within the space – but please feel free to also bring your own waterproofs.
