SCHOOL WORKSHOPS

William Shakespeare

The Brainy Bard

Considered by many to be the greatest poet and writer who ever lived, the works of Shakespeare are still studied and enjoyed to this very day and we can thank him for nearly 2000 words still in use in the English language! Our Shakespeare workshops aim to demystify the works of the Bard and improve vocabulary. Join us as we travel back in time to the 1600's, meeting Shakespeare and helping him create some of his most famous works. Facilitators will work to help children feel a part of the Shakespearean world as they take control and become story-tellers in their own right.

This workshop is delivered by Shakespearean trained actors.

Packages available: Silver, Gold.

If you pick our silver package your students will:

Enjoy an interactive session with one actor/facilitator.

Hear a Shakespearean monologue delivered by a trained actor.

What do other schools say?

"Directors were very professional and the organisation of the whole day was brilliant. Children enjoyed using props and the backdrop and performing what they'd done. We enjoyed it all! Yes we would book another workshop. It was a great day enjoyed by all, Thank you!" - Broadheath Primary School, Coventry.

All of our workshops can be tailored to suit the needs of your school and are flexible in their length. This means you can have up to FIVE one hour Shakespeare workshops in a day or a whole day of interactive and in depth fun with one class. Unlike most companies this does not change the price quoted.
