Summer Shakespeare Festival
PPF Group is the long-running general partner of the Summer Shakespeare Festival, which has been performing William Shakespeare’s plays to Czech audiences in the inspiring settings of Prague Castle every summer for the past 20 years.
Summer Shakespeare Festival is the oldest and largest open-air theatre festival in Europe to focus on Shakespeare’s works. The festival, running from the end of June to the beginning of September, takes place on open stages in Prague, Brno, Ostrava and Bratislava. Approximately 150 performances are staged over the course of the summer, with more than 80,000 visitors attending the festival every year.
Over the years, PPF has been the driving force behind add-ons to the summer theatre festival, such as prestigious photographic exhibitions and generous charity events, including benefit performances, assistance for performers facing hardship, and projects aimed at younger audiences.
