Shakespeare’s timeless tale of true love will be played out in the stunning surrounds of Norwich Cathedral’s Cloister this summer as one of the Bard’s most famous plays takes centre stage.

Romeo and Juliet will be performed by The Lord Chamberlain’s Men (TLCM) for the 2023 open-air Shakespeare Festival which is always a summer highlight at the Cathedral.

Audiences will be transported to the streets of Verona for the tragic tale of the star-crossed lovers and their warring Capulet and Montague families.

The Lord Chamberlain’s Men are a modern-day incarnation of the Bard’s own travelling troupe of players, and they will be performing Romeo and Juliet just as it would have been played out in Shakespeare’s day – with an all-male cast, full Elizabethan costumes and traditional music and dance.

The show will start at 7pm and doors will open at 6pm for people to enjoy the beautiful surrounds of the Cloister before the show.

Seating is provided but unreserved.
