More news, no ads


A theatre which prides itself on never stopping a performance because of the weather is proving that is true by carrying on despite the heatwave.

Stamford Shakespeare Company is still staging its production of Spider's Web at Rutland Open Air Theatre at Tolethorpe Hall tonight (Tuesday, July 19).

It comes as many businesses and tourist attractions are closing or changing their hours because of the rising temperatures, which could hit 40C today.

In a statement, the company said extra measures would be in place including the provision of water at multiple points and medical personnel on site.

It added: "We strongly encourage you to bring water, wear sunscreen and take care of yourselves in this heat."

This summer the company are presenting Shakespeare classic Romeo and Juliet (June, July and August) - which has had to be postponed for the last two years because of Covid restrictions, as well as Hay Fever by Noel Coward (June and July) and Agatha Christie’s Spider’s Web (July and August).
