So, March is here. And didn’t it sneak up on us quickly? And you know what March means? Well, amongst quite a bit, it means that the Easter Holidays are just around the corner. And do you know what that means? It means that the workshops I’m doing for Shakespeare Week are just around the corner too.
Starting on March 21st I’ll be spending an afternoon in 5 different libraries in and around Sheffield, working with children between the ages of 7 and 11. There’ll be story writing and ideas, there’ll be an introduction to the great man and his work, and, most importantly, there’ll be FUN WITH WORDS. Because Shakespeare invented so many brilliant words and phrases (and insults!) it’s the perfect way to discover him (and most likely find that we know more of his work than we think) and, as someone who found Shakespeare a little stodgy and difficult at school, it won’t be like that at all.
A lot of places have been taken already but there are a few left, so if you’d like your child or children to be involved then you should drop the libraries a line to book. I’ll be at…
Monday March 21st – Children’s Central Library – 0114 273 4734
Wednesday March 23rd – Highfield Library – 0114 2037204 / 2930018
Thursday 24th March – Chapeltown Library – 0114 2037000 or 0114 2037001
Wednesday 30th March – Hillsborough Library – 0114 2039529 or 0114 2039530
Thursday 31st March – Ecclesall Library – 0114 203 7222
… and I honestly can’t wait. It’s going to be a brilliant (if not tiring!) couple of weeks and I’m looking forward to it very, very much.
And do spread the word if you can – that sort of help’s always something I appreciate a huge amount.
If anyone has any questions you can always get in touch with me by going here.
See you there!
