Impromptu Shakespeare Theatre Workshop
Saturday 29 July, 11:30am-12:30pm
Anyone can be Shakespeare, and we're going to prove it. Huzzah!
Learn how to make up your own Shakespearean insults poems, translate how you speak to your friends into something Shakespeare would recognise. Understanding Shakespeare from the inside out really helps you see a whole different side to the plays he wrote.
This is a special family workshop for kids together with their parents or carers - it'll be fun and silly but with some really insightful educational bits, we promise!
This wonderful workshop is suitable for anyone who has started doing some Shakespeare at school or home (around 11+ but this can vary).
£7 per young person, parents/carer free.
