A theatre company is staging a summer production of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.

On July 28, the Chapterhouse Theatre Company will present Pride and Prejudice on the south lawns of Bylaugh Hall.

Adapted for the stage by Laura Turner, the show offers a slice of Regency life complete with period costumes and a romantic original score.

It is in support of All Saints Church in Bawdeswell and St Mary's Church in Bylaugh.

The event is a fundraising initiative co-organised by the friends group of each church and is made possible by the continued support of Norfolk-based business, Myfuturechoice.com.

The sponsors' involvement ensures all profit from the event goes to maintaining the church buildings.

The romantic tale will be told against the backdrop of the Wensum Valley.

The play tells the story of Elizabeth Bennet and her sisters tackling etiquette in Regency society.

Their mother, Mrs Bennet, struggles to marry off her daughters, believing wealthy bachelors need wives.

She learns of a new lodger, Mr Bingley, at the local manor.

Mr Bingley takes a liking to Jane, the eldest sister, but conflicts arise between his friend Mr Darcy and Elizabeth, shaking up everyone's lives.

Retail stalls, a bar, food outlets and a live band will complete the ambience.

Attendees have the option to bring picnics and must provide their own chairs.

Admission for children is free and tickets are currently available via ticketsource.co.uk.
