Open-air Shakespeare at city museum

Published on Thursday, August 25, 2016

INTRIGUE, ghostly visitations and a gripping duel will all be on display at Jewry Wall Museum over the bank holiday, when the venue hosts an open-air performance of Shakespeare’s Hamlet.

The two-hour production will be performed by the Festival Players Theatre Company, who promise to bring Shakespeare’s great thriller to life with plenty of passion and excitement, and in full costume.

The open-air performance starts at 7.30pm on Monday 29 August, with the grounds of Jewry Wall open for picnics from 6.30pm.

Tickets cost £13.30 (£12 concessions). To book, call 0116 225 4971.

The performance commemorates the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death, and also forms part of the City Festival, celebrating Leicester’s heritage, culture, music, arts and sporting activities.
