Meet Queen Elizabeth I

Queen Elizabeth I has arrived at the Charterhouse on the way to her coronation.

But, don’t forget, the house needs to look it’s best — from food to laundry, dress to décor, lend a hand to ensure the Charterhouse is fit for a queen! Each session lasts 45mins.

The Tempest – Shakespeare in the Squares

This summer we are delighted to be hosting a performance of The Tempest, the 2022 production from Shakespeare in the Squares. Director Sioned Jones comments, “The Tempest has been described by some as the perfect Shakespeare play. It has the love story of Romeo and Juliet, the revenge, intrigue and plotting of Richard III and the magic, fantasy and comedy of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.” The show will be outside in Charterhouse Square, so bring a picnic and join the castaways on their desert island.

Shakespeare in the Squares is a not-for-profit touring theatre company that stages a Shakespeare play in London garden squares for one night in each venue every summer. The aim is to provide a showcase for talented young theatre practitioners and to introduce audiences to the stars of the future. The exciting and innovative professional productions are filled with music and dance. Further information can be found at Charterhouse Square, EC1 – Venues – Shakespeare in the Squares Tickets are now on sale – book your ticket here.
