The works of Shakespeare can be seen in a whole new way in Sydney this summer.

People taking flights to Sydneywho want to soak up some culture during their stay could try heading to the Sydney Shakespeare Festival.

Now in its fifth year, the event is taking place at the Bicentennial Park, with productions of some of the bard’s most popular works being held across the summer months.

Direct Julie Baz explained to the Inner West Courier that the event will not be a strict retelling of the stories and has been created to appeal to more than just the most hardcore Shakespeare fans.

“We like the concept of theatre that’s accessible to people and this kind of event, people love it. They come and have a picnic, sit down and enjoy the sunset,” Ms Baz said.

There are plenty of different cultural events taking place to interest people on flights to Sydney in the coming weeks, with the city boasting it will host the biggest celebration of Chinese New Year outside of China itself.
