The sites of two Wars of the Roses battlefield’s in Hertfordshire will again ring to the sound of bloody battle when Shakespeare’s three Henry VI plays are performed there this month.

Under their original titles – Harry the Sixth, The Houses of York & Lancaster and The True Tragedy of the Duke of York – the all-day spectacles will take place in the grounds of St Albans Abbey on August 11 and Monken Hadley Common in Barnet on August 24. The plays are part of a nationwide tour organised by Shakespeare’s Globe exploring the links between English history, literature and landscape.

We have a pair of tickets to the Barnet show to give away, worth £90. Email ‘The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers’ to competitions@hertfordshirelife.co.uk with your name, address and telephone number by August 12 for your chance to win.
