Families can put their Shakespeare knowledge to the test with an Easter Family Quiz at Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall, whilst for mini eggs-plorers an Easter Bunny Trail will take them hopping, skipping and jumping around one of Stratford-upon-Avon’s most historic buildings. These are both FREE family activities (included as part of admission) taking place over the Easter holidays (15 to 28 April 2019), with Easter treats for all children taking part during the Easter Weekend (19 to 22 April).
Families can collect their free Easter Family Quiz sheet when they arrive at Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall, then work as a team to uncover the answers. In the process they will embark upon a fascinating journey around the building and its interactive exhibits, learning more about William Shakespeare’s young life in the place where he was educated and began the transformation from ordinary schoolboy to the world’s greatest playwright.
Mini adventurers can hop to it with an Easter Bunny Trail, going on the hunt for some Easter Bunnies who have hidden themselves around the 15th century building. With lots of great hiding places, nooks and crannies, they’ll have to be eagle eyed to find them all!
Shakespeare’s Schoolroom is regarded as one of the top family visitor attractions in Stratford-upon-Avon. Having been heaped with praise by families for its engaging exhibits, it is currently ranked as TripAdvisor’s second most recommended attraction in Stratford-upon-Avon. As well as joining in with Easter activities, families can take part in an interactive lesson from a Tudor schoolmaster in William Shakespeare’s original Schoolroom, try their hand at quill writing and even dress up in Tudor costumes!
Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall is located in the centre of Stratford-upon-Avon and is open daily from 11am to 5pm. The Easter Family Quiz and Easter Bunny Trail are both included within the admission price. Over the Easter weekend (19 to 22 April) children will receive an Easter treat when they take part in the Easter Family Quiz or Easter Bunny Trail.
