15 July 2015
During the period 21 July–2 August 2015 the Bodleian Library is delighted to host, in association with Oxford Playhouse, a Globe Theatre on Tour's production of Much Ado About Nothing in the Old Schools Quadrangle.
The performances take place outside Library opening hours. Audience seating will be retained in the Quadrangle throughout this period but there will be ample space for readers to access the Library.
It is not anticipated that any entrances to the Quadrangle will be closed off with the exception of a closure of the North Arch entrance on Tuesday 21 July to allow set up. Seating will be put up on Sunday 19 July and taken down on the afternoon of Monday 3 August: there will be some noise associated with this activity.
We apologize for any inconvenience caused.
