World Shakespeare Festival Begins April 23rd!

The World Shakespeare Festival (WSF) starts April 23rd.  It  is a celebration of Shakespeare as the “world’s playwright.” The Royal Shakespeare Company is producing the event, which runs until the November. This event is an unprecedented collaboration with leading UK and international arts organizations. It’s the biggest celebration of Shakespeare ever staged. Approximately 60 partners will be coming together over the next few months to participate in the Festival.  According the the RSC’s website, “Thousands of artists from around the world will take part in almost 70 productions, plus supporting events and exhibitions, right across the UK, including London, Stratford-upon-Avon, Newcastle/Gateshead, Birmingham, Wales and Scotland and online.” Over 1,000.000 tickets will be on sale for the festival.

Folger Education will be participating in the Worlds Together Conference to be held in London, September 6-8.

Are you planning to attend any of these events this summer, when school is out?

  • I’m planning to spend the summer in London in spite of the Olympics, and specifically for this Festival! I also plan to attend the Worlds Together Conference, and have already made plans to meet some people there, including some of the speakers! Looking forward to seeing you there too!
