The Scottish play comes to the Welsh Castle

The outdoor Shakespeare performances at Cardiff Castle – part of the Cardiff Festival celebrations – are back this weekend.

I’ve blogged about these wonderful productions in the past and would really recommend going along.

This year the Lord Chamberlains Men are performing Macbeth – a real change from their usual comedies which in the past have included Much Ado About Nothing and Twelfth Night. The cast consists of male actors only, who also take in the female parts (as was traditional in the Bard’s day). This added to the amusement when performing Shakespeare’s comedies, so it’ll be interesting to see how this will work for a tragedy like Macbeth.

Macbeth at Cardiff Castle is this Friday 6th and Saturday 7th July at 7.30pm – but doors open early so you’re encouraged to get there an hour or so before, and bring a picnic. Oh and bring your waterproofs too – the show must go on, even if it’s raining!

Book your tickets by Wednesday to take advantage of the Early Bird Saver – Adults: £13, Children: £9. Tickets on the night – Adults: £16, Children: £11.
