Great Yarmouth's Hippodrome is being transformed into a magical island for a new production of The Tempest at this year's Norfolk and Norwich Festival.

The show, which is being directed by the festival's artistic director William Galinsky, is one of the headline acts of this year's May arts extravaganza.

The show opens on Monday, and ahead of this the festival has released a trailer giving audiences a sneak preview of the show.

It has been described as a 'completely unique production' of the Shakespearean play about shipwreck, magic and enchantment, and will take to the Hippodrome stage from May 9 to 21.
