Instead, they’re hoping that locals come out in droves to enjoy a sunshine-kissed open air performance of Much Ado About Nothing at Shrewsbury Castle.

The Lord Chamberalin’s Men are staging the production on August 9. Audience members can look forward to Shakespeare’s sparkling battle-of-the-sexes comedy; a story of trickery, treachery and, ultimately, true love. Laura Jones, from co-sponsor FBC Manby Bowdler, added that the production would be a wonderful celebration of the Bard and she hoped people would buy tickets in advance.

For the past decade the hugely popular company have brought their own special brand of authentic, exhilarating and engaging all-male productions to one the UK’s most historically important and visually stunning venues. Chloe Mitchell, from co-sponsor Tudor Healthcare Accountants, at Shrewsbury, said: “This year’s production, in the year that marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death, will be no different.
