By Staff reporter in Arts

The open-air performances by Illyria are always one of the highlights of the summer season.

This weekend the company returns to Abergavenny Castle with four very different offerings kicking off with A Comedy of Errors on Saturday, August 5.

A double helping of al fresco theatre bursts into the castle grounds on Sunday, August 6 with an afternoon of fun for the whole family with The Emperor’s New Clothes at 2.30pm and an evening of pre-historic capers with an adaptation of Arthur Conan Doyle’s The Lost World at 7pm complete with thrills, monster laughs and life-size dinosaurs!

The packed three days of outdoor theatre comes ends on a musical high note on Monday, August 7 with a production of the Gilbert and Sullivan classic The Mikado.

The festival of outdoor theatre is performed by one of the country’s most highly regarded companies - Illyria and is promoted by A4B, the voluntary committee which represents Abergavenny’s amateur theatre community.

Tickets are available from the Borough Theatre Box Office on 01873 850805, online at boroughtheatreabergavenny.co.uk or on the gate an hour before each performance.
