"The speakers are really knowledgeable and encouraging"

— Student Comment

"A fantastic and stimulating day of engaging talks which reinforced but also extended students thinking and learning of “Othello”. The girl’s enjoyment was palpable and there is so much we can take back to school to discuss!"

— King Edward Camp Hill Girls School

"Lecture was excellent. Very useful context and critical readings of the play that will be of real benefit for exam. Great that there was so much questioning of the pupils."

— Christ College, Brecon
