Sunday 4 Aug, 2.30pm - Outdoor Theatre: The Mikado

This is a fabulous comic opera by Gilbert and Sullivan, presented by popular outdoor theatre company Illyria.

In the town of Titipu flirting has been made illegal. The penalty is death. Too bad then that the main culprit is the Lord High Executioner Ko-Ko, who wishes to marry his beautiful young ward Yum-Yum, and who has no intention of executing himself. So when Nanki-Pu, a wandering minstrel, decides to end it all because his own love for Yum-Yum is doomed, Ko-Ko has the perfect candidate for execution. Except that Yum-Yum, by tradition, would have to be executed with Nanki-Pu. And Nanki-Pu turns out to be the Mikado’s own son. And the Mikado himself is about to arrive on a state visit to Titipu….

Thursday 29 August, 8.15pm - Summer Film Series: Annie Hall

Fulham Palace brings the third summer film series to you in August and September.  Run in partnership with The Nomad (presented by Lexi Cinema), 2013 sees four fantastic movies coming to the lawns of Fulham Palace.

The first film in the series is Annie Hall.  The freewheeling script follows the reflections of nervy comedian Alvy Singer (Woody Allen) as he falls for goofy, irresistible Annie Hall (Diane Keaton), and then details the demise of their love affair as they bicker around NYC.  Neurotic New York romance at its finest.

It will be followed in September by When Harry Met Sally on September 5, Four Weddings and a Funeral on September 12 and Amelie on September 19.

To book visit The Nomad website by clicking here. Tickets £12.50. Please note seating is not provided.
