The De La Warr Pavilion has just announced its new live broadcast - Almeida Live: Richard III on Thursday July 21.

The Almeida Theatre will make its debut with this explosive adaptation starring Ralph Fiennes as Shakespeare’s most notorious villain. The play also features Vanessa Redgrave as Queen Margaret.
