Shakespeare Week

This is a week you won’t want to miss!

We’re looking forward to celebrating 400 years of Shakespeare’s creative legacy during Shakespeare Week 2016.

Throughout the week we’ll have activities and events, with some exciting surprises thrown in too, stay tuned for news as we reveal how we’re throwing Shakespeare the best party he’s ever had!
Every Hampshire library you go into during Shakespeare Week will have a special treasure trail, you’ll have to hunt through the library to find Shakespearian characters and fill their names in on your special bookmark. When you’ve finished you can collect your Shakespeare sticker as a reward.

You’ll also find puzzle sheets, and amazing art work from the beautiful Where’s Will? book, kindly supplied to us by Ivy Kids. Search through Shakespeare’s own plays to match the pictures of the characters and of course find Will! Go to any Hampshire Library during Shakespeare Week to take part in the fun.

Don’t Forget, if you check in to a Hampshire Library on Facebook while you’re there celebrating Shakespeare Week, you could win a copy of Where’s Will!

As if all of this wasn’t enough, you’ll have the chance to make your own 3D Globe Theatre in loads of libraries too!

Hampshire Libraries is very excited to be welcoming Richard Cuddington, author of the incredibly popular Easy Reading Shakespeare, will be coming to Gosport Discovery Centre and Fareham Library on the 19 March. Listen to Richard read some of Shakespeare’s most loved plays, in simple, straightforward verse that everyone can understand, then make your own Shakespeare pencil top, suitable for ages 10 years and over and adults too!
