How many plays did Shakespeare write? Which feature ghosts? Which are non-fiction and which are made up? Join Christopher Lloyd on the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death on a ride through the roller coaster world of human emotion using an all-new coat with different coloured pockets to represent jealousy (green), anger (red), riches (gold), love (purple), terror (white) and magic (black).

Using the new What on Earth? Wallbook of Shakespeare, published in collaboration with The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, this talk explores the world of Shakespeare as a gateway to the entire spectrum of human nature. This family talk is ideal for all curious individuals aged 5 - 105.

The What on Earth? Wallbook of Shakespeare is part of a series of What on Earth books created by Lloyd. John Gordon-Reid gives talks on the 4-billion year story of life on Earth and great moments in 10,000 years of science and engineering on Saturday, April 2, and Sunday, April 3. Lloyd gives talks on Magna Carta – 800 years in the fight for rights and freedoms, best moments in British history from the dinosaurs to the present day, and the complete plays of William Shakespeare on Thursday, April 7, Friday April 8, Saturday, April 9, and Sunday April 10.

All the talks are free and no ticket is required.
