Lancaster's Williamson Park is providing the backdrop this August for three top quality outdoor drama productions by the award winning London-based Illyria theatre company.
The plays will be an adaptation of the classic Jane Austen novel Pride and Prejudice on Tuesday 17th August, Shakespeare’s well loved Romeo and Juliet on Friday 20th August and a production of Roald Dahl’s popular children’s story James and the Giant Peach on Saturday 21 August.
Illyria tours the highest quality open air theatre to the most prestigious and stunning locations throughout the UK and regularly receives excellent reviews.
All plays take place in The Dell - the park's natural amphitheatre. Wooden benches are available for seating but it should be noted that cushions are not provided. The Pavilion Café will be open for refreshments during the interval.
