For one night only, audiences are being invited along to see The Castle theatre in Wellingborough transformed into Shakespeare’s favourite pub.

Fine Chisel Theatre Company will be bringing the lively show, Midnight At The Boar’s Head, to The Castle on Saturday.

Midnight At The Boar’s Head has been described as a “dramatic party”.

Outside the land is burning, but in the bar music is playing, drink is flowing and there are stories to be told.

The Boar’s Head in London’s Cheapside was Shakespeare’s favourite pub and the Fine Chisel Theatre Company bring it to life once more and fill it with an array of colourful characters.

Some of them you would expect to find there, propping up the bar, while others 
have been relocated from a number of The Bard’s complete works.

Audiences are invited to grab a glass and join in the fun of a pub night which takes its visitors back in time to the Shakespearean era.

Foot-stomping live music, party-popper warfare and folk-fuelled storytelling are promised as part of the show.

A spokesman said: “Shakespeare has never been so fun.”

The Edinburgh Fringe award-winning Fine Chisel is a theatre company and a band.
