Student Workshops

Students in a workshop

We offer full and half day practical workshops which explore the creative choices behind current RSC  productions or any Shakespeare play of your choice.

We believe students have the best possible introduction to Shakespeare if actively introduced to the themes, characters and language before seeing a production.

Depending on your students' knowledge of a play, school workshops can offer a first introduction, or a more in-depth insight. They can be tailored for students from Key Stage 1 to undergraduate, with or without prior knowledge of the text.

Workshops take place at The Clore Learning Centre, Stratford-upon-Avon, and have a maximum capacity of 30 students.
