Open air theatre at Westminster Abbey this summer

The renowned outdoor theatre company, Illyria, comes to Westminster Abbey this summer for two special performances in Dean’s Yard on Wednesday 9th and Thursday 10th August.

Join us as the Abbey provides the backdrop for their adaptation of Jane Austen’s classic, Pride and Prejudice.

In a social whirlwind of balls, dinners and very eligible officers, Lizzy Bennet and Fitzwilliam Darcy stand alone as the only sane people - and they hate each other! Or do they? Can she see beyond his pride, and can he overcome her prejudice, in order to achieve their mutual happiness?
