Romeo and Juliet to be performed in Ventnor

Shakespeare's classic tragedy Romeo and Juliet is to be performed at the Ventnor Botanic Garden next month, with the event promising to be a real treat for lovers of the arts on an Isle of Wight getaway.

The story of William Shakespeare's star-crossed lovers will be brought to life at 21:00 BST in the New Zealand Garden, with the stunning surroundings helping to heighten the suspension of disbelief integral to any great performance.

Centring on the trials and tribulations of the eponymous lovers and the bitter feud of two rival families, Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet is a classic tale of love and revenge and one that all true lovers of theatre should be familiar with.

Tickets for the show will cost £12.50 for adults and £10 for concessions, with guests urged to get there in plenty of time to take their seats and to explore the many other delights of the botanic gardens before the curtain raises.

Guests are also reminded that as this is an open air performance they should remember to bring with them warm clothes and their own seating.

Furthermore, if individuals wish to enjoy refreshments or even an open air picnic, then these items can be pre-ordered when booking tickets, which are available from gardens' gift shop and can be picked up on the night.

The gardens will open one hour before the performance is scheduled to begin.

Elsewhere, the Open Studios series is being held at venues across the Isle of Wight from July 19th to 21st and the 26th to 29th, with local artists opening up their workspaces to visitors keen to gain an insight into their creative process and latest works.

Open Studios is organised by Isle of Wight Arts and will cover Newport, Cowes, Yarmouth, Freshwater, Niton and many villages in between, with admission costing £35 for those wishing to take part.ADNFCR-3083-ID-801605367-ADNFCR
