The Shakespeare Group

 The aim of the group is to read through some of Shakespeare’s plays together, and enjoy them!  It isn’t intended to be very academic, nor will it involve acting.  It will just be reading a part aloud. 

After a very brief introduction to the play we will read it through in ‘bite-sized chunks’, then go back over it to discuss it, highlight bits we particularly liked, and share and improve our understanding – then on to the next chunk.  We’ll share knowledge and enjoy each other’s company.


One important thing is for us all to be reading from the same version, so I would like to bulk buy a dozen or so copies from Amazon.  Currently they are only £1.99 each, so I hope members would chip in for that and get a copy to keep.

We meet on the first and third Thursday of each month in the Gallery Room, U Choose Smoothie Bar on Bath Street, Ilkeston from 10.00 a.m. until 12.00.
