Book a Table


After a somewhat disrupted year, we’re all in need of a “Summer of Love” more than ever. That’s why we’ve teamed up with the amazing Open Bar to bring you Shakespeare In The Garden at Bel & The Dragon Reading. A Shakespeare play, full to the brim with comedy, romance and adventure, all while enjoying a drink in our waterside terrace in Reading.



Four couples separated by an oath, a “fantastical Spaniard” longing for a forbidden love, misplaced letters, a ridiculous play-within-a-play, a chorus of ukuleles, lightning-fast costume changes, drinks at your fingertips… Open Bar will be filling our terrace with their unique, modern and fast-paced production of Love’s Labour’s Lost.

Four actors will play all seventeen characters in this mischievous, and rather pertinent love story. We can’t wait to bring you the kind of entertainment we all deserve this summer: laughter, romance and, perhaps most importantly, the longest word in Shakespeare!

To ensure that customers enjoy Shakespeare in the Garden safely, we are following government guidance for outdoor theatre.

Tickets are priced at £18 per person. Please get in touch if you have any questions.

What To Expect – See Last Year’s Show


Shakespeare in the Garden is a comedic, fast-paced performance. The shows are suitable for people of all ages and would make a great family outing. Of course, Shakespeare in the Garden is enjoyed by Shakespeare lovers, but if you haven’t seen a Shakespeare play before, this would be the perfect introduction


What happens if it rains?

No matter rain or shine, THE SHOW MUST GO ON! Nothing says British outdoor theatre than a bit of drizzle, so waterproofs are advised (Elizabethan ruffs less so). We’d also like to encourage you to BYOB (Bring Your Own Blankets) to stay all wrapped up and cosy.

How do I get my ticket?

When you’ve purchased your ticket, you will get sent a confirmation straight to your inbox. Where possible, you don’t need to print off your tickets, just show your digital ticket at the door.

When do I need to arrive?

Most shows start at 7:30 pm through to 10 pm, however, we advise arriving by 6:30 pm to take your seat and to grab a much-needed drink before the show. If you’d like to eat beforehand, it’s best to book in advance and let us know you’re watching the show.
