Bard Boutique

Come to the Village early and browse the Boutique!

The Bard Boutique offers a large selection of unique gifts and Bard on the Beach merchandise. We carry one-of-a-kind jewellery from local designers, season t-shirts featuring this year’s plays and plenty of Shakespeare-themed items such as games, magnets, baseball hats, blankets, umbrellas and more!

Bookworms will be in their element with our extended selection of Shakespeare-inspired books and comics, including favourites like William Shakespeare’s Star Wars by Ian Doescher, and the Shakespeare Manga series.

The Boutique is open 1 hour prior to show time and at intermission. On weekends it’s also open for 30 minutes following our matinee performances. The Boutique accepts Visa, Mastercard, Amex, debit, Discover and cash.
