The Globe returns to Bristol
19 March 2007
Miles Gregory, a fourth-year PhD student in the Department of Drama and Director of the Bristol Shakespeare Festival, is to oversee an exciting programme of open-air theatre this summer, which includes a production by London’s Globe Theatre.
The festival, founded in 2003, now attracts audiences of around 8,000 each year. ‘Things have really taken off this year’, says Gregory. ‘Bristol now hosts the largest professional open air Shakespeare festival in the UK. This is a great opportunity for us to see top quality shows in our beautiful city.’
