The acclaimed author will be talking about his new book to an online audience of our lead associate school teachers and theatre partners on 7 July.

We have organised a special online event for our Lead Associate School teachers and theatre partners to say thank you for their hard work and incredible commitment throughout a difficult academic year.

The acclaimed children's author Michael Morpurgo will take part in a conversation with our Director of Education, Jacqui O'Hanlon, on 7 July via Zoom, talking about the book of Shakespeare tales he has recently finished writing. The book aims to retell the works of Shakespeare with language and images from inner-city life, to make them accessible to a younger age.

Michaell Morpurgo is a former children's laureate and author of more than 150 children's books including War Horse.
