A comedy re-imagining of the 2000 Hollywood blockbuster Gladiator will form part of the upcoming In Here Festival in Great Yarmouth this May.

Gloriator is the story of bravery, honour, and costumes made of cardboard!

Performed by a female Anglo-French comedy duo, the show takes certain scenes from the well-known movie and adds a spin to highlight the perspective of the female roles.

Gloriator is on Thursday, May 21 at 7.30pm at the Drill House in York Road at 7.30pm and is just one of many spectacular events being put on Seachange Arts for the In Here festival.

With performance, circus and workshops, the In Here Festival has emerged from Seachange's partnership with Battersea Arts Centre and the Collaborative Touring Network.
