Celebrating the Bard at 450: Arundel Castle to present stunning open air Shakespeare shows

Arundel Castle in West Sussex is to host the highly acclaimed GB Theatre Company for three nights of Shakespeare’s much loved plays. The Comedy of Errors and Macbeth will be performed al fresco in the Collector Earl’s Garden as part of the Arundel Festival, and tickets are now available for purchase. 

For theatre-goers and Shakespeare fans alike, there can be no better celebration of his literary feats than seeing them bought to life, against a dazzling dusk backdrop. The Collector Earl’s Garden offers an idyllic setting for these performances; surrounded by the finest floral displays, in the shadow of the impressive Cathedral as the aptly named ‘Oberon’s Palace’ glistens behind the stage.   

One of Shakespeare’s earliest plays, The Comedy of Errors will be performed on Thursday 21 and Saturday 23 August, while the twisting tragedy Macbeth will unfold on Friday 22 August.   

Promising a cast of talented performers and famous faces from both stage and screen, the GB Theatre Company is poised to deliver a trio of entertaining evenings; combining earnest performance, stimulating plots and a sensational venue.   

Castle Manager Bryan McDonald is delighted to see the GB Theatre Company return to Arundel Castle, he explains: “We are thrilled to be welcoming the cast and crew of the GB Theatre Company back to Arundel Castle for 2014. Year on year, they produce the most spell binding performances and keep the audiences entertained throughout.   

“I cannot think of a more fitting celebration of Shakespeare’s 450th birthday, than to welcome two of his most admired plays to the Collector Earl’s Garden. I look forward to seeing what’s in store for this year’s audiences!”  

Tickets are on sale now priced at £26 for adults and £16 for children, and can be purchased online at gbtheatrecompany.com/arundelcastle.html. Fans of the performing arts are encouraged to book early, as these are popular shows and expected to sell out.
