The magic of the Willow Globe can sometimes over-shadow where it all started and what drives it- Shakespeare Link, which is now in its 25th year!
Our Artistic Directors Sue & Phil are passionate about Shakespeare as a tool for creating links with all people- regardless of age, gender, class, ethnic origin, religion or level of education. Shakespeare connects us all. They have used this as the foundation of their work all over the globe for quarter of a century- with amazing results.
This day long programme of talks, discussions, performance and workshops welcomes ALL COMERS to connect and explore the human condition through Shakespeare. It doesn’t matter if you have never experienced Shakespeare before or you consider yourself an expert- the richer the mix the better!
10:30-1:30 Workshops and discussions exploring how we can use Shakespeare to discover ourselves and connect with other people, with Ian Yeoman, Kama Roberts and Shakespeare Link. This workshop is free when you buy a ticket for the afternoon presentation.
