It's Springtime! And as I salute the sun and budding greenery, I dust off these keys to tell you about two great creative events happening locally. One very soon (tomorrow, Sunday 11th March) and one at the end of March, Saturday 24th. Both are theatre-based, one is for young people and the other is for older people, though no less playful!
Shakespearience bring you an interactive afternoon of Shakespearean theatre, creative writing and art experiences for young people:
I met the ladies from Shakespearience a couple of months ago and their enthusiasm, research and imaginative preparation for this event was certainly inspiring. Their aim for this project is to make Shakespeare's writing more accessible for young people.
Event numero two: from writing to writing and devising:
