Within the Bois de Boulogne, in the Jardin du pré Catelan, you will find the Shakespeare Garden and its "Green Theatre", which plunges audiences into the world of the famous English playwright, William Shakespeare. This garden has a number of small themed gardens inspired by the Bard's plays, such as "A Midsummer Night's Dream", "The Tempest", "Macbeth" and "Hamlet".

This festival offers a rich and varied programme, welcoming 400 spectators who come to appreciate the arts. Traditionally, these shows, which take a different theme each year, are suitable for all. The programme is usually made up of puppet shows, stories, comedy, circus acts, readings and so on.

Bois de Boulogne

A former hunting ground for the Kings of France, the Bois de Boulogne has become the largest spot for relaxation in the west of Paris. With a surface area of 850 hectares, one of the ‘lungs’ of the capital encompasses the Parc de Bagatelle, the Jardin des Serres d'Auteuil, the Pré-Catelan and the Jardin d'Acclimatation. It offers numerous walkways, 28 km of bridleways and 15 km of touristic cycle routes. There are numerous facilities, which have been designed to suit everyone, such as playgrounds for children, the Musée en Herbe, picnic areas, bicycle hire and boat hire on the Lac Inférieur, the Auteuil and Longchamp racecourses, restaurants and the Théâtre de Verdure.
