Workshop: An Introduction to Shakespeare and his World


A 90 minute session led by one of our Practitioners, including:

  • A half hour guided visit to the theatre.
  • A one hour workshop based on any Shakespeare play of your choice.

In this session, students are encouraged to respond to Shakespeare’s plays as stories to be shared between actor and audience, and to experiment with the sounds and rhythms of Shakespeare’s language. This workshop can support national curriculum study at KS2 and can be used to augment classroom work on literacy, English and understanding the arts.
