What could be more romantic than to revel in a performance of Romeo and Juliet in the Kipling Gardens on Midsummer’s Day? The acclaimed professional touring company, The Lord Chamberlain’s Men will present a brand-new action-packed production of the world’s greatest love story. For 400 years the tragedy of Shakespeare’s “star crossed lovers” has gripped audiences with its perfect blend of excitement, heart-stopping thrills and the most famous balcony scene in theatre history. With Elizabethan costume, music and dance and an impressive set, audiences will be able to enjoy this tale of feuding families and two young lovers who are driven by youthful passion and blind love.

Enjoy a picnic on the green or in the gardens if you wish before the show, but comfortable chairs will be provided for all the audience. There will be a bar available. Tickets are priced at £16 and can be booked with Suzanne at Rottingdean Arts Box Office at Best of Brighton and Sussex Cottages in Laureens Walk, Nevill Road. Tel: 01273 308779.

    What a truly wonderful evening. Shakespeare done wonderfully well in the beautiful setting of Kipling Gardens and the summer solstice weather was more than kind to us. Our family had the kind of evening that is precious and will stay in the memory bank for a long long time. Many thanks to Roy and the team for making this happen. Dare we hope that it may be an annual event?
