Six Good Reasons to Book a Group at Bard on the Beach!
1. Save Money
Book as a group and receive up to 15% off on seats, making a Bard visit more affordable than ever.
2. Reserved Seating & Flexibility
All groups pay a non-refundable deposit of 50% to have the best seats available put on hold. The remaining 50% is due two weeks before the performance date, when you can make final adjustments to your group numbers (which must include a minimum of 10 adult tickets).
3. Space for entertaining your guests & affordable pre-purchased picnic boxes
Groups may rent the intimate Marquee tent (next to the Mainstage tent) for up to 80 people. Please contact us for marquee rental rates. You can also order picnic boxes in advance through Emelle’s Catering; groups receive a 5% discount on orders of 10 or more picnics (regular prices $10-$24).
4. Access to our group sales coordinator
With knowledge of special events, the Bard Village and the neighbourhood, our Group Sales Coordinator can give you information about our preferred partners including caterers, restaurants and hotels.
5. Assistance promoting your group event
We provide you with custom promotional content that is easy for you to print, post on your Facebook page or website, or include in an email to help you rally your group together.
6. Access to the Bard pre-show experience
The Bard Village opens one hour prior to curtain; come early to experience everything we have to offer. We can reserve up to four picnic tables just for your group (pre-order Emelle’s picnic boxes or bring your own). Our concession offers a range of wine, beer, non-alcoholic drinks and light snacks. The Bard Boutique offers a wide selection of Shakespearean books, mementos and clothing. Don’t miss our free, insightful In A Nutshell talks before each play performance.
