The Castle Hospitality Marquee

On-site catering throughout the Stafford Festival Shakespeare 2018 is offered via the hospitality marquee. Sited alongside the main auditorium, the hospitality marquee has a bar, kiosk and various food options within it.

It is open from 6pm daily (12noon for matinee performances) through to the commencement of the performance and also during the interval.

The hospitality marquee houses seating for over 100 people plus outdoor seating with a view of the castle. It contains a well-stocked bar serving local beers and lager, cider, wines, a great range of spirits plus soft drinks.

Interval drinks can be pre-ordered to save time.

The marquee also houses a kiosk that serves tea, coffee and hot chocolate, confectionary, crisps, popcorn, ice cream as well as a daily selection of fresh sub-sandwiches with homemade fillings and cakes and pastries from local bakeries.

It also offers delicious pre-ordered picnics that contain everything for two people to enjoy a summers evening picnic before the performance.

Picnics must be pre-ordered as they are freshly prepared each day and are available as standard, gluten free or vegetarian.

The standard picnic contains, crisps, olives, bread rolls and butter, salads, pastries/quiche, cooked meats & cheeses, chutney, cakes & strawberries. A large bottle of apple juice and two bottles of mineral water. It is all supplied in a cooler bag that also contains all the cutlery, plates and napkins and cups and even a picnic blanket.

For allergen information please call 01782 372224.

A picnic for two costs £29.95 and can be ordered on-line at www.awwines.co.uk. The cut off point for ordering a picnic is 6pm on the day before the performance, or noon for matinees.

Picnics are delivered fresh to the site each day and are available for collection from 6pm on the day of the performance (noon for matinees).
