Romeo and Juliet in the Fellows' Garden

Romeo and Juliet embracing

Romeo and Juliet is being performed open air in the Fellows' Garden as part of the Cambridge Shakespeare Festival.

The season started on Monday evening and the Cambridge Evening News commented: 'The setting – sweeping lawns and huge leafy branches falling in a natural curtain for the players to rush through – is stunning, threatening at every moment to upstage the actors. Luckily, they held their own...'

The review concluded the play was 'Fun, lively and littered with moments that border on fantastic, the setting is perfect, the performance just shy of wonderful.'

The performances are on every evening except Sundays, and they begin at 7.30pm. For more information and tickets see the Cambridge Shakespeare Festival website.
