THE popular outdoor theatre is returning to Walton Gardens next month.

A special performance of Julius Caesar will take place against the backdrop of the stunning estate.

The Shakespeare performance will be brought by Oddsocks Productions.

“Prepare to laugh your socks off as the bonkers but talented cast of five actors, plus a life-sized puppet or two, pitch up to perform Shakespeare as you’ve never seen it before,” a spokesperson for the event said.

Cllr Tony Higgins, cabinet member for communities, culture and leisure said: “We’re so pleased that the talented Oddsocks Productions team have chosen Walton to host their first production of the year.

“Their funny, family-friendly performance of Shakespeare’s Julius Caesar, set against the backdrop of Walton’s beautiful grounds, is the perfect summer activity for families.

“These outdoor theatre events always prove popular, so don’t risk missing out and book yours today.”

The performance will take place outside in the gardens and will still go ahead if it is raining, so make sure you check the weather forecast beforehand and dress appropriately.

Julius Caesar is suitable for audiences aged seven and over, with a total running time of two hours including the interval.

The event will start at 6pm with the show starting at 7pm, and drinks will be available to purchase on site.

Ticket prices start at £10, with a limited number of deck chairs also available to purchase. Please be aware that dogs, excluding service dogs, are not allowed at Walton’s outdoor theatre events.
