Bristol Victorian lido becomes theatre venue

A Victorian lido in Bristol is to be transformed for a production of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet.

The swimming pool in Eastville Park was turned into a community garden, after being damaged in World War Two.

More recently, it has fallen in to disrepair and was a favoured hang-out for city night-owls.

But the tragedy will become a romance as Eastville lido reopens to the public for the performances.
