Welcome to Chilham Castle


The Chilham Chase 400 Weekend of Celebration

20th – 22nd May 2016

Following the success of the “The Chilham Chase weekend” in 2013 we are thrilled to announce that “The Chilham Chase 400 Weekend of Celebration” will take place over the weekend of 20th-22nd May 2016.

Chilham Castle was completed in 1616, the year of Shakespeare’s death.

To celebrate both 400th anniversaries we are delighted to have been chosen to host the premier of the Globe Theatre’s open-air summer season. They are producing, at our exciting and unique venue, four performances of Shakespeare’s ‘The Two Gentlemen of Verona’


In addition to The Globe’s production, on Saturday 21st a fair and a classic car display will be situated on the front lawn, and the ‘ Chilham Chase Race’ will take place around the park.

Open-Air Shakespeare Tickets now on sale direct from the The Globe Box Office!
