Laugh like Elizabethans at Sandwell's Manor House Museum as the medieval house becomes the settings for one of Shakespeare's best loved comedies.
The acclaimed Festival Players, who are based in Gloucestershire, will be performing The Bard's Twelfth Night at the museum on Sunday 19 August.
The performance will take place in an outdoor theatre in the grounds of the Manor House in Hall Green Road, West Bromwich.
The festival players are a theatre company who specise in performing Shakespeare outdoors - in the Elizabethan style.
The gates open at 4.30pm and those planning to go are advised to bring something to sit on. Also visitors are more than welcome to bring along picnics to enjoy while they watch the performance.
The play runs from 5pm to 8pm.
Cabinet member for leisure services Councillor Linda Horton said: "It's great to be able to bring Shakespeare to Sandwell and give local people the opportunity to experience England's most famous playwrite in West Bromwich!
"We are hoping for some lovely summer weather, but in the event of rain the performance will take place in the great hall of the house."
