Shakespeare at Christmas

Shakespeare at Christmas – A Midsummer Night’s Dream

No Shakespearean play offers such a feast of magic, fun and frolic as A Midsummer Night’s Dream. The boundaries between reality and illusion are blurred in a nocturnal forest where charms hold sway and lovers are led astray. Join the rude mechanicals in the enchanted forest and ward off your midwinter blues with a dose of fine lyrical poetry and witty prose.

This popular event has been running for over 25 years now and many students return again and again to be inspired by Shakespeare’s words. So, come and enjoy the relaxing and homely environment of Brinscall Hall (address below) over the Christmas period.

During the three days, time will be spent reading and discussing the play and watching videos of the key scenes.

The charge for the three days is £40 which includes lunch and refreshments. (The charge for a single day’s attendance is £15). The study days commence at 9.30 am and finish around 4.30 pm each day. It would be helpful to bring a copy of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Accommodation is available at the Hall on the 28th and 29th December at £10 per night per person. Please indicate that you will be staying over when booking. No activities will be arranged for the evenings.
