Workshop at Westminster Abbey

Join us for a workshop guaranteed to get students roaring with patriotic pride. Learn about Shakespeare's kings and Tudor Westminster.

Students take part in an interactive, actor-led workshop, finding out about Shakespeare's speech writing techniques. The workshop ends with a lively group rendition of Henry V's 'From here unto the breach' speech.

The session also includes a guided tour around Westminster Abbey. Students will learn about the significance of coronation, walk in the footsteps of Shakespeare's kings and view the royal tombs. The visit ends in Poets' Corner where students will see Shakespeare's own memorial as well as those of great Shakespearian actors through the ages.
