The Family Shakespeare Festival takes place at the Living Willow Theatre from the 2nd to the 4th July – a weekend about families for families using dance, drama, music, workshops and talks to explore this current hot topic. The festival includes workshops and talks from Tim Caroll, Andrew St George and many more.
The Factory Theatre Company will be giving a full weekend contribution with As You Like It on Saturday and The Seagull on Sunday as well as offering a performance element to workshops and discussions. If you have not seen this company before, you must!
We are thrilled to announce that we have just secured Germaine Greer, controversial, agenda-setting author and acclaimed academic, to talk about her book “Shakespeare’s Wife” on the evening of Saturday 3 July.
After her talk, Germaine will hold a question and answer session which naturally spreads to cover almost any subject Professor Greer has written on in her long career! We have more exciting artists in the pipeline so watch this space for details!
This will be a truly amazing weekend and a chance to access some incredible professionals. The enchanting Living Willow Theatre is set in the stunningly beautiful Upper Wye valley and offers camping, a magical new nature trail and Shakespeare reference library. There will be a bar and gorgeous food available all weekend. If you have not made a trip to The Living Willow Theatre before this is the time to come.
