All the world's a stage as Worthing's celebrated Highdown Gardens prepares for its summer open air extravaganza for theatre-lovers.

The famous chalk gardens, owned and run by Worthing Borough Council, will provide the stunning backdrop for three of William Shakespeare’s most popular plays:

There's also a special treat for children, with an adaptation of the Kenneth Grahame novel:

All of the performances will be staged in the glorious setting of the Lower Garden at Highdown, which commemorates the 50th anniversary of the death of its founder Sir Frederick Stern in July.

The productions - by SISATA Open Air Theatre, Rainbow Theatre and JW Productions - are just part of the town's exciting summer of entertainment, which the Council hopes will encourage even more visitors to Discover Worthing.

Tickets, priced from £8 to £16, are available through the Highdown Gardens website and, with afternoon and evening performances, guests are invited to bring picnics to make the occasion even more memorable.
