Shakespeare in Performance: Study Trip (18-21st June 2024)

During this study trip, we will see a number of Shakespeare plays in production, followed by pre- and post-performance discussions, and visit some locations pertinent to Shakespeare’s life and times.

We still have four heavily subsidised places remaining on this trip, which are open to any student in the department, whether BA or MA, including any student who has not taken the related BA5 Shakespeare in Performance seminar.

Each place costs just 100 francs, and includes three nights’ accommodation (including breakfast), four performances at the Globe Theatre and the Royal Shakespeare Company, an acting workshop, a lecture and tour of the Globe Theatre, and transport between London and Stratford-upon-Avon. Coach to Birmingham International Airport on the final morning is also included.

Students are responsible for their own transport to and from the UK, lunch and dinner, and any other incidental expenses.

If you are interested, please contact us by 5pm on May 3rd for more information and to reserve your place via emily.smith(at), andrew.reilly(at), or shakespeare-in-performance(at)
