We are looking for some young artists to use their creative skills to produce a mini exhibition of interpretations of William Shakespeare.
Rather than a blank canvas, it is a clay outline of Shakespeare’s portrait that will be your starting point. Then it’s up to you to add the colour and originality that will transform the piece and make it stand out from the crowd.
The competition is open to children aged 16 and under.
The winner will receive a voucher of their choice for £50 and £20 for the runner up.
All the entries will form part of a mini exhibition that will go on display in his Master’s Chamber.
Collect an entry pack from the reception desk at Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall as part of your visit (this is open daily from 11am to 5pm). The packs are £1 and include your own clay tile.
Use your artistic skills to transform the piece with paint, glitter and your imagination.
Return your entry to the Schoolroom by 31 August and it will go on display as part of the exhibition and be entered into the competition.
We’ll announce the "head that wears a crown" on 3 September with the winner invited to the Schoolroom to collect their prize from the Master.
All entries will be featured in a mini exhibition after which they can be collected by the entrant.Buy Tickets
The Easter Bunny is inviting you to hop over to Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall for some Family Friendly fun and to enjoy an Easter Trail with a Shakespearian twist.
For the first time visitors to Stratford-upon-Avon will be able to explore the place of William Shakespeare’s birth and where he went to school by purchasing one joint ticket to the two historical landmarks.
Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall in Stratford-upon-Avon is about to light up the dark evenings with the lantern of Jeremiah Pinchbeck, a character from the 18th century with a tale or two to tell. Once the caretaker of this magnificent building, Jeremiah will guide visitors down the ancient halls rekindling stories from the past, some of which may set your spine tingling.
