The Great Shakespeare Debate
The Great Shakespeare Debate is an A level debating competition, run by The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and the English Speaking Union. Our last debate took place on the 7th and 8th of March 2012.
For the first round of applications students were invited to submit entries via You Tube where they were asked to engage with the question of Shakespeare’s authorship in response to online resources provided on the subject. The final, which took place in Stratford upon Avon, included overnight youth hostel accommodation, three rounds of debating, workshops, a question and answer session with RSC actors and a trip to see Measure for Measure at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre.
