Be inspired by Shakespeare’s stories!
Monday 20 to Friday 24 March 2017
For KS2 or KS3 groups
We are now taking bookings for an exciting day for school groups during Shakespeare Week, which we are running at the Museum in partnership with Chichester Festival Theatre.
During the day pupils will have a go at different activities:
- Take part in a drama warm up activity and then work with the young practitioners and the learning team from Chichester Festival Theatre to examine one of Shakespeare’s plays – this year it will be Macbeth.
- Explore Museum homes and other buildings, led by one of the museum team, and think about everyday life in the time of Shakespeare. What were the experiences of someone from his background?
- At the end of the day share a performance piece of Macbeth to each other.
There will be lots of opportunity for follow-on work at school as we’ll focus on core skills.
The cost per pupil for the day (entry & workshops) is £9.50. The maximum group for this activity on any day is 70 pupils; please contact us on 01243 811459 to secure your places!
On the Saturday we will offer some informal activities for families around the site relating to Shakespeare’s England.
