Next month Arundel Castle is to host another feast of Shakespeare this summer as part of the magnificent Arundel Festival with two spectacular alfresco performances from the GB Theatre Company in the Collector Earl’s Garden at the Castle - As You Like It on August 26, and Romeo and Juliet on August 27.

Tickets are priced from £16 for children and £26 for adults. Ticket holders are invited to arrive early and enjoy their picnics in the Castle grounds before the performances commence in The Collector Earl’s Garden.
