Open-air theatre at the Grappenhall Heys Walled Garden

Award-winning Illyria present Romeo and Juliet, one of Shakespeare’s most loved works

Enjoy this iconic tale that’s extremely funny too! Two wealthy families, the Montagues and the Capulets, are in a long and bitter feud. But when Romeo (Montagu’s son) meets Juliet (Capulet’s daughter) everything changes. The pair fall into a forbidden love that sets in motion a chain of devastating events. Performed by Illyria in the perfect setting of the Grapehnall Heys Walled Garden, this production of Shakespeare’s classic is passionate, poetic and utterly gripping! A real treat for the festival.

Note that the doors open at 6pm for a 7pm start, and attendees are invited to bring their own seating and picnic (well-behaved dogs under control at all times are allowed).

Early booking is recommended.

This event is not suitable for children under 10.
