East Yorkshire brewery brings Shakespeare to the Wolds 

440 Theatre bringing Shakespeare to Wold Top Brewery

An East brewery is set to bring live theatre to the Yorkshire Wolds this summer with an alternative take on Shakespeare.

Touring company 440 Theatre will visit Wold Newton based Wold Top Brewery on 28th July to deliver a performance of Shakespeare with a difference.

As part of a double bill, the troupe of four actors will be performing Macbeth and Romeo and Juliet in one evening.

Wold Top director Kate Balchin said: “We can’t wait to see two of Shakespeare’s greatest tragedies transformed into comedies. 440 have been delighting audiences up and down the country with their fast-paced, in-your-face productions offering an alternative take on some of the world’s most famous plays.”

Founded in 2003, Wold Top is located on the Mellor family farm at Hunmanby Grange near Filey and uses home-grown barley and water from the farm’s own borehole to produce a range of award-winning cask, keg and bottled beers available throughout Yorkshire and beyond.

The live theatre night is one of a series of events throughout the year, including a charity quiz, a beer festival and an open day, to celebrate the brewery’s 20th anniversary.

Tickets cost £16 for adults and £12 for concessions, including a pint or soft drink on arrival. Early bird tickets cost £14 and £10 respectively and are available until 1st April.
