'Next Stage' challenges and inspires A Level students applying, or thinking of applying, to study English at university. It brings together students who share a passion for Shakespeare (along with their teachers) to explore Shakespeare's life, works and legacy, beyond the constraints of examination specifications. 

Leading Shakespeare experts will engage students in discussions and debates about a range of Shakespeare-related topics, giving them a taste of university level study.

The event offers a unique opportunity for high achievers to learn alongside and hear from other students applying to study English, as well as serving as useful preparation for university interviews.

There will also be CPD benefits for accompanying teachers.

Duration:  10.30 am to 3.45 pm
