Festival legends Oddsocks return to Harrogate on the 2nd and 3rd July to perform Julius Caesar. Formed in 1989 by Andy Barrow and Elli Mackenzie, Oddsocks have been performing as part of Harrogate International Festivals for over two decades. This year they bring the Bard’s comedy to life in the gorgeous setting of Harlow Carr Gardens. Pack your picnic and get ready for an evening of laughter and mayhem that is suitable for all ages.

Rome 44BC.  Egotistical Emperor Julius Caesar is sweating (and it’s not just the heatwave).  His liberal Senators are a stabbing pain in the backside. They’ve had enough! Rome is in chaos, trust in the government is weak and the emperor’s fate is written in the stars (or the ‘entrails of a goat’).  The peasants are revolting as the most famous political coup in literature is given the Oddsocks treatment. Expect the tearing of togas, the swishing of roman swords, some preposterous puppetry and the biggest battle scene five actors have ever created.   On your marcus, getus setus, let the games begin!

RHS Harlow Carr

Doors open at 6.30pm for Friends of the Festival and RHS Card Holders.
