Shakespeare’s Schoolroom & Guildhall will be opening its doors for February half term holidays (from Saturday 19 to Sunday 27 February), with lots of fun for families to enjoy throughout the building. It will be the final opportunity to see its Tudor Childhood exhibition and on Thursday 24 February it will be filled with the shared stories and creative tales of Kate’s Storytree.
Open daily for the holidays from 11am to 5pm there is the chance to explore this place of wonder and find out about William Shakespeare’s days as a schoolboy. Every aspect of the experience is interactive; from the school lesson that you will join, to the quill writing that you will be able to try your hand at. Adding to the sense of discovery, the Tudor Childhood exhibition looks at life 450 years ago through the eyes of a child from card games to board games, dolls to precious trinkets.
And on Thursday 24 February Kate’s Storytree will be taking over the Master’s Chamber to create a world of imagination full of stories, ideas, creativity and colour. Sessions will take place throughout the day and will be inspired by themes that capture thoughts of home, play, celebration and the future. Kate will share her stories and then it’s time for you to use your imagination to create your own tales by writing, drawing, cutting and sticking; with all the materials available to bring your creation to life and the opportunity to take your story home as a postcard to share.
Kate’s Storytree experience at Shakespeare’s Schoolroom is included within the entry price. Booking is not essential, but if you book in advance you can select your time slot. The sessions are suitable for children aged 4 and above, and for all parents and carers. All the details are available here.
