Five year old Joe proves Shakespeare Week works!

Exploring Shakespeare with the younger generation

Katie Neville

Five year old Joe's Nan told me he knew lots about Shakespeare and she was right. It was great to meet Joe and his friends and family - including three year old Lucas and nine year old Briony - when they visited Shakespeare's Birthplace on the Bard's 450th birthday. What a brilliant bonus to discover Joe had been inspired to learn all about Shakespeare when his school in Northampton took part in Shakespeare Week - a national celebration of Shakespeare for children, launched this year by us here at the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.
