Ticket price

Three authors who have created books that inspire children and inform them about the life and work of Shakespeare join to mark the 400th anniversary of the death of the Bard.

Tony Bradman, Geraldine McCaughrean and Marcia Williams will read from some of Shakespeare’s plays alongside actress Ailsa Joy, and there will be a chance to join in with this lively and informative event.

Bradman has written for all ages including the Dilly the Dinosaur books for beginner readers, historical books such as The Story of Boudicca, and retellings of several Shakespeare plays including Macbeth and Julius Caesar. McCaughrean is a Carnegie Medal-winner and has written more than 160 books. She is best known for her official sequel, Peter Pan in Scarlet, and has published retellings of Shakespeare stories. Williams specialises in retelling literary classics in a witty and accessible style. She has just published Tales from Shakespeare. Mary Hoffman is an award-winning author of many hugely popular novels for children and young people. She has written about the Bard in her new book Shakespeare’s Ghost.
