Shakespeare Out and About

Outreach sessions for Primary Schools

Can’t bring your class to us? We can bring our workshops to you! We offer outreach workshops to enhance your pupils’ history or literacy studies through a mix of hands-on, interactive learning activities to spark their creativity.

Outreach sessions are available to schools within a 60 minute travel radius of Stratford-upon-Avon.

Will on the Road [Full or Half Day]

This hands-on workshop allows children to learn about Shakespeare from cradle to grave, as they discover what life was like for William as a schoolboy, actor and playwright.

Activities include:

  • learning how quills, ink and parchment were made, writing with quills using the Tudor alphabet and creating parchment tags
  • hearing about the plague in Shakespeare’s time and investigating Tudor remedies including making a lavender bag
  • seeing a replica of Shakespeare’s Will and finding out what he left to his family and friends
  • participating in Tudor games and Tudor-dancing

Price on application.

“Our Year 6 pupils recently enjoyed a fantastic day with SBT’s Primary Education Team learning all about aspects of Tudor daily life. They were able to consolidate their knowledge through interactive activities ... The whole day was very well planned and delivered, with all COVID-safe guidelines in mind. We would love to do it all over again!”
