“Double, double, toil and trouble” comes to Leeds Castle

From 28 – 30 June, the UK’s most acclaimed open-air theatre company - The Lord Chamberlain’s Men return to Leeds Castle with their all male production of Shakespeare’s devastating and gripping thrillerMacbeth’.

Bring a picnic and enjoy this open air production performed in the stunning grounds of the castle.…but beware of witches and traitors!
Macbeth’s ghostly apparitions and action-packed sword fights are sure to get the heart racing. This dark tragedy will be performed on the Pavilion Lawn with the atmospheric backdrop of the 900 year old castle.
See Shakespeare’s play performed to the very highest standard at “the loveliest castle in the world” and in the way the Bard first envisioned - with an all-male cast, traditional costume and Elizabethan song and dance.

Mark Puddle, Founder and Creative Director of the Lord Chamberlain’s Men said:

“Macbeth has everything; a tragic love story, a lust for power and a drunken porter as well as fights, ghosts and plenty of blood! Macbeth has always been considered one of Shakespeare’s most popular plays. The contrast of a beautiful summer’s evening and Macbeth’s tragic tale is a perfect fit for the famous castles and stately homes that we visit.”

Tickets cost £15 for adults and £12 for children under 16. Please visit leeds-castle.com or call the Leeds Castle box office on 01622 880008 to book (booking fee applies). Gates open at 6pm. Performance starts at 7pm.
Leeds Castle is located near Maidstone in Kent just off Junction 8 of the M20 and only one hour’s drive from London.
