Start Time

Join us for an evening celebrating one of the greatest writers of all time as we discover why there is still so much to learn about the Bard. This is an evening with one of the leading Shakespearean scholars.

One rival called him an ‘upstart crow, beautified with our feathers’. A friend praised him as a ‘star of poets’ who was ‘not of an age but for all time’. Over 400 years after his death, Shakespeare continues to ruffle feathers and delight audiences and readers. 

Darren Freebury-Jones explores why Shakespeare still speaks to us today, the ways in which this actor-dramatist gives voice to so many different characters, and how he raises questions we’re still seeking to answer.
