Bard On The Bus, Derby Book Festival

  • Market Place, Derby DE1 2FE United Kingdom (map)

We have been asked back to #DerbyBookFestival this year and will be on the bus again! This is part of ‘Bringing Books to Life’: “Join us for a fun-packed, spellbinding day of stories, creativity, music, magic and nonsense – and it’s all about Friendship!”

Hear #Shakespeare speeches and poetry brought to life along with fun children’s #poetry on the theme of friendship. We will be performing every half hour or so for approximately 10 minutes but there will be other#Shakespearean #activities for #kids on the bus in between.

Rehearsals are Sunday 28th May from 11.00-1.00 and Sunday 4th June from 11.00-1.00, at Shakespeare House, 93 Kedleston Road, Derby, DE22 1FR. Please come at these times with a piece or pieces you have practised. #BardOnTheBus is not an all-day commitment (obviously if you can do all day that would be great!) and a schedule will be drawn up. There will be an opportunity to join the company if you haven’t already. We would welcome general helpers on the day as well, message our Facebook page if you are interested.
