The Stories That The Bard Doth Nick!

Where better to start the Celebrating Shakespeare Festival at the very beginning …

Join storytellers Nicky Rafferty and Mike Payton as they delve into the melting pot of plots and politics that inspired Will to pick up his quill and create many of his best loved plays.

From foolish kings, feisty maidens, fatherless sons and discarded daughters – Shakespeare lifted the good bits, changed what he didn't like and chucked out the rest.

Under 14s to be accompanied by an adult aged 18+
