Gdańsk Shakespeare Festival

Held since 1997, the year of Gdańsk’s Millennium Celebration, the Gdańsk Shakespeare Festival is a return to the Renaissance tours of English theatre troupes to our city. The Festival is an international review of the most intriguing adaptations of the plays of the Swan of Avon, from the traditional to the experimental. For the first time, the event will be held in a wonderful new setting: the spirit of Shakespeare will descend upon the new building of the Gdańsk Shakespeare Theatre, a modern multi-purpose building designed by visionary Italian architect Renato Rizzi.

St. Dominic's Fair

The tradition of St Dominic’s Fair dates back to the 13th century. On the final Saturday of July, throngs of merchants from Germany, France, England and even Spain and Portugal would come arrive in Gdańsk. Over 400 ships were known to call at the harbour with French and Spanish wine, silk, preserves, Portuguese spices, English tin and cloth. Circus acts, acrobats, jugglers and actors’ troupes would come from far and wide.
