The spectacular surroundings of Chepstow Castle create an exciting backdrop to professional open-air theatre productions. Chepstow Festival is proud to present the most diverse programme of open-air theatre in Wales, including two productions especially for children. Picnics are welcome and in the event of rain the huge audience canopy not only provides shelter but also greatly enhances the acoustics.
