A fantastic outdoor family show that takes you on a journey through the Trojan War…as you’ve never seen it before.

Troy – Something BC. A young bull herder accidently eats a golden apple. Three Goddesses aren’t happy. And then 10 years later a city burns.

Obviously, a lot happened in between these points and several important things happened before, all of which will be shown for the first time in well over a millennium as Assembleth Theatre take you on a journey through the Trojan War as you’ve never seen it before. The sort-of truth behind Achilles heel, the golden watermelon of Paris, the twelve accidental labours of Hercules and more will be revealed as the history of one of the most important conflicts of the ancient world comes to life.

Our guide to getting the best out of your time outdoors

  • Come prepared! – Bring whatever you need for a cosy afternoon. Sun shades, sun cream, hats, warm woollies, blankets, waterproofs, a waterproof lap cover (either a sheet of paper or a bin bag work well), and insect spray!
  • Bring your own seat – Low backed chairs, rugs and a cushion are always nice. Combine comfort and style! Please make sure that any chairs and/or umbrellas will not obscure anyone else’s view.
  • Gather a posse – Bring friends and family (family tickets are available, see website for more details). The more the merrier for a fun day or night out!
  • Arrive Early – Pick a great spot and enjoy the atmospheric surroundings
  • Bring a Torch – It’s very helpful to safely find your way back to the car for evening performances.
  • Bring a Picnic – Refreshments are also available from an hour before the performance.

Acesss to those with Restricted Mobility is available to most of the fort including the cafe and all levels.

Fully compliant disabled toilets are available and all refreshment areas are accessible.

Nothe Fort has a cafe which serves hot and cold drinks and lunches. The cafe will be open during our events.

Tickets can currently be purchased online or by telephone. The telephone line is manned between 10am and 4pm Monday to Friday. At all other times please leave your name, telephone number and ticket requirements and we will call you back.

We are not currently able to welcome visitors for advance face-to-face ticket sales.

No booking fees are charged, but a £1 Future Fund levy is included in most ticket prices to support our work. This levy is included in the published ticket price. Concessionary prices (for events promoted by Dorchester Arts): where available, these are offered to under 18s, students, those in receipt of benefits and people on low income regardless of age.

Please note that outdoor performances will go ahead come rain or shine. Cancellation will only occur in extreme circumstances and we will notify ticket holders immediately should such a situation arise.

Covid-19-related ticket policy

We are operating a ticket-less system at the present time. On arrival at events, please give your name and reference number at the box office to gain entry. Once checked in, a wrist band will be available. We will ask you to help yourself to these wrist bands in order to minimise contact.

If you are unable to attend a performance due to a positive Covid-19 test result, displaying Covid-19 symptoms or have been instructed to self-isolate, please contact us to exchange your ticket for an alternative event (of equivalent value) or claim a refund. Please contact Dorchester Arts as soon as you are aware of a problem. Tickets cannot be reimbursed once an event has passed.

Dorchester Arts is a registered charity, so if you feel able, please consider forfeiting your refund as a donation.
