The Tempest promotional image for Norfolk & Norwich Festival.


In May 2016, one of the East’s most iconic venues was taken by storm when Norfolk & Norwich Festival commission The Tempest opened at the Great Yarmouth Hippodrome.

Inspired by the magic of the Hippodrome, Norfolk & Norwich Festival Artistic Director William Galinsky, working with theatre-makers including designer Laura Hopkins, created a production full of wonder and surprises. Tony Guilfoyle, long-term Robert LePage collaborator, led the cast as Prospero in a production that brought The Tempest to life for a modern day audience.
