Also coming up are live broadcasts of two Shakespeare plays performed by the Royal Shakespeare Company.

On Wednesday 12th September the Empire will be screening The Merry Wives of Windsor and on Wednesday 14th November there will be a broadcast of Troilus and Cressida.

Tickets for each of the Shakespeare screenings cost £14.00 (£12.00 concessions). However, if you book for both screenings, the tickets will only cost £11.00.

On Saturday 28th July, there will be a treat for lovers of classical music. There will be a live screening of international star Andre Rieu’s latest concert.

The concert will be staged in the stunning setting of the medieval main square in Andre’s hometown of Maastricht, in the Netherlands. Andre will be performing with the 60-piece Johann Strauss Orchestra.

As well as the live screening on 28th July, the Consett Empire will be showing the concert again on Wednesday 15th August.

Tickets for the screenings, which both begin at 7.00 pm, are priced at £16.00.
