Shakespeare Festival comes to King's

Actor in 'Much Ado'

The Cambridge Shakespeare Festival is staging the comedy Much Ado About Nothing in the Fellows' Garden at King's.

'Much Ado' is one of Shakespeare's most popular plays. Sharp-witted Benedick and Beatrice both scorn love and marriage, and the play follows their friends' attempts to bring them together, and to make them as devoted to each other as the lovestruck Claudio and Hero. In the background, however, the surly Don John conspires to ruin everyone's happiness.

The performances take place from 1 to 20 August. As well as enjoying the play, you have a rare chance to stroll around the Fellows' Garden, which is normally closed to the public.

You can buy tickets from the Cambridge Shakespeare Festival website, or on the night from the gate to the Garden. Tickets cost £15 (£11 concessions) and performances start at 7.30pm. The gate to the Fellows' Garden is on Queen's Road, opposite the back of the College.
