The Lord Chamberlain’s Men, so named after Shakespeare’s own acting troupe, returned to Tattershall Castle last Friday with a thrilling performance of Romeo and Juliet.

Using the castle as a dramatic backdrop, the seven actors delighted a large crowd in a performance that spanned two hours.

It was a dry if chilly night but the audience were fully prepared and even the sound of the castle’s colony of rooks did not spoil the entertainment.

Next year, the troupe will return to perform Twelfth Night. The next event at the castle is a Falconry display on August 27 (11am-4pm)
