Five actors, with all manner of musical instruments, present an inventive take on Shakespeare’s infamous story of whirlwind romance and bitter tragedy.

This summer, The Three Inch Fools take to the road for the third year running, touring their brand new productions of Twelfth Night and Romeo & Juliet. The Three Inch Fools are a five-strong troupe of actors with all manner of musical instruments, travelling with set, props, costumes and camping gear, performing a highly imaginative and vibrantly musical take on Shakespeare's plays.

The Fools perform Shakespeare in almost any kind of setting - to date, they have performed at castles, stately homes, gardens, churches, market places, village greens, an old fire station, a medieval crypt, a crowded pub and a garlic farm – all the world's a stage!

The Three Inch Fools will be performing Romeo & Juliet at All Saints Church, Bakewell, on 21st June at 7:00 pm. This performance is an indoor performance. Audience are invited to bring picnics from 6:00 pm.

This summer, The Three Inch Fools are performing 68 times at over 60 venues across the UK, including National Trust and English Heritage properties, cathedrals, churches, village greens, castles and many other places besides.
