About the event

A Unique Shakespeare Retreat exploring Shakespeare's most famous lovers with a particular focus on Romeo and Juliet, Anthony and Cleopatra, and Much Ado About Nothing

Arrive on Sunday 13th October for our evening welcome dinner, or on the morning of Monday 14th October for our first play reading, and stay in one of our spacious ensuite rooms through to check-out on Friday 18th October. During your stay you will have the opportunity to observe or participate in:

  • a guided reading of one play each day, followed by a group discussion
  • two extended workshops exploring Shakespeare's language and verse
  • two lecture-style presentations on aspects of Shakespeare's work, followed by Q&A
  • a panel discussion of Shakespeare's lovers with Q&A
  • four creative response sessions (in which you have a chance to respond to Shakespeare's plays in writing, visual art or drama - or explore the local landscape)
  • a candlelit presentation on the effects of candlelight in Shakespeare's plays
  • a showing and discussion of at least one film or TV adaptation of one of the plays

The total cost for your own superior ensuite room on this retreat, full board with all activites (and stunning views across the Dee Valley from your room), is just £995 incl VAT for the week.

The total cost for a standard room on this retreat, full board with all activities, is just £895 incl VAT for the week.
