Under a star-filled sky at Wylds Farm the Petersfield Shakespeare Festival will see a pair of star-crossed lovers tell their story in Romeo and Juliet.

In a small village with only a pub and a church to its name, two young people fall in love with disastrous consequences during one week in a sweltering summer. Only one woman knows everything - but could she have stopped it?

Before the show on July 21 will be the first Petersfield Shakespeare Festival Fringe, from midday until 4.30pm. It will be filled with short plays, new writing, talks, walks, live music, children’s activities, ice cream, picnics and other refreshments. All Fringe events will take place in the Wylds Christmas Tree Farm.

The show runs from July 16 to 21, with performances at 7.30pm each night (doors open 5pm) and also at 2pm on July 18 and 20 (doors open midday).
