The Bristol Shakespeare Festival is an open-air theatre festival founded in 2004 and held annually in the parks and green spaces of the city of Bristol, as well as in both traditional and non-traditional theatre spaces in the city.

The festival is a not-for-profit organisation that claims to be the largest professional open air Shakespeare festival in the UK.[1]

Running during the month of July, the festival plays host to a wide range of theatre companies, usually presenting between seven and ten full professional productions, from across the United Kingdom.
