To celebrate three decades since the Rose Playhouse’s discovery, there will be a gala performance in aid of the Rose Revealed Project on 13 May 2019

The evening will feature dramatic readings from celebrity patrons such as Janet Suzman and Michael Pennington, talks about the original excavation and its future transformation, music, and a silent auction with items donated by Judi Dench and Ian McKellen, amongst others.

The event will take place in the atmospheric setting of Southwark Cathedral, where several Renaissance theatrical figures are buried, including Shakespeare’s brother Edmund, as well as Philip Henslowe, the man who built the Rose.

Tickets for the event range from £20 for the main event, to £40 for the event plus a drinks reception and access to the silent auction in the Cathedral’s beautiful retro choir, to £75, which will give you prime seating for the event, access to the reception and auction, and a private visit to the Rose archaeological site at a mutually agreed date.
