Photos capture Shakespeare in Bramley Park

The local residents  of Bramley were treated to a midsummer night’s showcase of Shakespeare’s most famous plays in the park this weekend.

Young and old were entertained by the cast of Front Room Productions, who performed scenes with a mix of original tongue and modern day music which delighted the audiences.

Local resident Judith said:

“We were happy that Bramley Park was used for this  production. We enjoyed it. It was lively, fun and very creative. The young people were very enthusiastic and kept us entertained.”

The free shows were funded by the Inner West Community Committee Wellbeing Fund and Leeds Inspired, part of Leeds City Council, and could be followed by more activities in the park in the future.

Front Room Productions can be seen at Temple Newsam Leeds from the 4th to 15th of August for booking and further information visit
