Tuesday 12 March  – Shakespeare and Schools

As the entire building is taken over by young people for the Shakespeare Schools Festival, we will be gathering to share our own experiences of Shakespeare while at school. Whether you can recite a sonnet or soliloquy you learned in your teens, or you are a teacher currently engaging your students with a set text, please come and join us for this informal creative conversation. Refreshments from 5.30pm. Discussion from 6pm. Ends 6.55pm so that ticket holding attendees can join the audience for the Shakespeare Schools Festival performance.


Join CEO Anna Farthing, archivist Colin Bradey and other members of the team. They will be sharing insights into the past, present and future of the New Theatre Royal.
