The British Shakespeare Company

As a performer of Shakespeare's works the British Shakespeare Company is second in size and reputation only to the RSC.

As well as being "Britain's largest and best loved open-air Shakespeare Company" (The BBC), we have performed in London's West End, at major repertory theatres and even at Royal Palaces. We have also performed private shows for British and international businesses, and in aid of several major charities.

We can offer a full-length production as part of our tour or tailor an event to suit your needs, time and budget. Below are some suggestions…


“A spellbinding and rewarding night our…better than the RSC…simply a triumph” Yorkshire Evening Post

“Sheer delight, never has Shakespeare been so entertaining”  The BBC

This production is a one hour version of Shakespeare’s comedy classic. It is edited to include all aspects of the story, all famous speeches and all the finest and funniest moments. It will be easy to follow and run at an exciting pace to keep the audience engaged at all times.

It is based around our critically-acclaimed production that toured in both 2005 and 2006 to sell-out audiences.


This is an exciting and dynamic way to experience the very best of the bard.

William Shakespeare will lead you through the greatest moments from his plays. Leading actors from the BSC will perform the most romantic, comical, passionate and powerful moments from the bard's classics. This can include live period music, exciting sword fights and songs from Shakespeare’s work.

We can also tailor an Evening with William Shakespeare to just include: Comedy and Music, Romance or Great Leaders.


The BSC work with a network of ‘Early Musicians’ that can present music from all periods as background or as a concert for your event. The music, instruments and costumes are all historically accurate.


A dynamic presentation for business that focuses on Shakespeare’s successful and failed leaders.

Henry V has inspired business and military leaders for generations and Macbeth failed to find loyalty and resorted to desperate tyranny.

How did Henry V succeed?
Where did Macbeth fail?
And what lessons can be learned and applied?
