Set within the magical open-air surroundings of Grosvenor Park, this new staging of Romeo and Juliet will take place in late 1950s Italy and will feature an original score specially composed by the local Chester band, Me + Deboe.

The backdrop for this outdoor performance spectacular really is unrivalled…

Established in 2010, Grosvenor Park Open Air Theatre is one of the country’s best-loved open-air theatres and regularly plays to sold-out audiences across the summer. The theatre is produced by Storyhouse, Chester’s award-winning cultural centre. Alongside, the three productions, there will also be a Grosvenor Park ‘village’. Offering a festival-esque vibe, there will be al-fresco seating, a teepee bar, activities for children as well as an exciting programme of extra events too.

The backdrop for this outdoor performance spectacular really is unrivalled – all you need to do is round up your family and friends, pack a picnic (or pre-order a pizza at the venue) and get that prosecco chilled on ice. A joy for all of the family in the beautiful open-air theatre at Grosvenor Park.
