Rally the troops for battle in this interactive storytelling session of Henry V.

Sometimes a really rubbish gift tips you over the edge. If you’re the King of England it can be the thing that pushes your buttons enough to start a full on invasion.

Shakespeare’s Henry V is the ultimate tale of heroism, disguise and the power of words. So shine up your armour, dust off your French to English dictionary and enter a world of valour, honour and romance in Shakespeare’s famous historical adventure.

Fiona Drummond is in charge of storytelling and morale as we head once more unto the breach. Fiona is an actor, director and Learning Consultant at Shakespeare’s Globe.

We few, we happy few, we band of brothers
