Families across Staffordshire are invited to ‘boogie with the bard’ at Staffordshire libraries to celebrate this year’s Shakespeare week.
Organised by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, Shakespeare Week from 21 to 27 March celebrates all things William Shakespeare. Primary school aged children will have opportunities for enriching and enjoyable early experiences of Shakespeare.
The theme for this year’s celebration is movement and dance, using sport, dance and leisure in Shakespeare’s time. The playwriter mentions nearly 50 different sports and games in his plays, including archery, fencing and even football and tennis.
Libraries across Staffordshire will be celebrating with tabletop crafts, displays and of course lots of Shakespeare books to borrow and enjoy.
Victoria Wilson, Cabinet Member for Communities and Culture at Staffordshire County Council said: “Shakespeare Week is a great celebration of one of the world’s best known playwriters and provides a great opportunity to get children interested in his works. Playwriters today are still inspired by his work and our libraries are always happy to join in with a range of activities to get people enthused about writing and books . I would urge families to see what’s on at their local library or download some of the amazing resources to celebrate at school or at home. You could even visit our e-library and borrow a Shakespeare e-book or e-audio book. Whatever you do, we’re looking forward to seeing our library staff, volunteers and customers joining in as they ‘Boogie with the Bard’.
