Laugh at the slapstick of Bottom and Titania, thrill at the plotting of Macbeth and his wife, and shiver at Hecat the witch goddess as she guides you through a Shakespeare show in Matlock on Sunday.

Following two successful performances in Matlock last summer, Derby-based 1623 theatre company is delighted to return to Hall Leys Park on Sunday 19 August for an afternoon of Shakespeare.

The show, which runs at approximately one hour, will begin at 2pm at the bandstand.  All you need to do is bring along your own low-back seating and a picnic lunch if you wish, and enjoy the show.  This event is free, thanks to the support of Matlock Town Council.
