This open-access programme will run from 6 to 19 August 2017 and allows participants to find out about the latest developments in Shakespeare studies. You can study the power, beauty, meaning and context of his plays, explore aspects of performance in workshops led by a professional actor and director, and discover connections with the wider world of Elizabethan culture. Leading academics teach our rich collection of open-access courses and the classroom sessions allow for close discussion. These are supplemented by morning lectures and evening talks given by subject specialists. What’s more, you can join an excursion to see Much Ado About Nothing at Shakespeare’s Globe and enjoy evening performances of some of his plays in beautiful College gardens.
What makes the programme so special is that you can choose to stay and dine in a historic Cambridge College, enjoy weekend excursions, social activities and all that Cambridge has to offer.
The closing date for applications is 24 July 2017.
