Socially distanced Shakespeare success at Langthorne Park

Langthorne Park Shakespeare ELSF 120920

Sunshine and Shakespeare were the ideal combination for a sell-out success when the Langthorne Park amphitheatre hosted two shows of Shakespeare highlights.

Both performances attracted a lot of local people to see their favourites from the Bard as well as give advice to Romeo on how to woo Juliet while maintaining two metres social distancing.

Watch out for more performances in our parks next year and then join in the fun.
