On Saturday, at 2pm, Nick Young, from dramatics society Rainbow Shakespeare, will speak about the magic of Shakespeare’s writings and reveal the hidden secrets of the world’s greatest playwright.

It is widely accepted that Shakespeare wrote 38 plays and 154 sonnets before his death in 1616, aged 52. His work has been translated into every major living language and performed more often than those of any other writer.

Nick, a member of the Royal Shakespeare Company, has been running Rainbow Shakespeare for more than 15 years and will delve deeper into some of the ‘Bard of Avon’s’ finest work.

Tickets are £4. Email [email protected] or call 01903 704809 to reserve a place.
