Shakespeare Out Loud is a group who meet to have a look at Shakespeare’s words in a totally non-academic and slightly theatrical way.

Returning for 8 sessions beginning on October 11, in Halstock Village Hall ,  7.30– 9.30pm.

New comers are welcome, all ages. If you already love WS or you think you might, do come along. No previous knowledge necessary. Totally safe! –usually lots of laughs. 

In these eight sessions we will look at  ‘HENRY IV part 1’

Bring copies of the play (or complete works). But homework unnecessary.

Call Bardy Griffiths to say you are coming or for more info.
