The programme is packed and diverse, and the theme threading through events this year is the enthralling world of Shakespeare‘s villains. It begins on the 20th April with a Shakespeare film night, showing probably the best-ever ‘Richard III’ at the wonderfuly characterful West Street Loft. On Friday 21st in the afternoon there’s a vigorous discussion, ‘Richard III Villain or Victim?’. In the evening the lively talented Wick players are at West Street Loft to give us intriguing, dramatic insights with ‘Something Wicked’.

Students declaiming the Bard, ‘Seven Singers’, South Downs Folk Singers and musicians will be performing on the streets of Shoreham on Saturday. At the Shoreham Centre there will be a guided workshop, ‘Dragonish Clouds and Green-eyed Monsters’, open to all, to explore ways of turning lines from the plays and sonnets into pictures. Saturday afternoon, ‘Iago and the Question of Evil’, a fascinating talk with live readings, then Shakespeare Night, with madrigals from Worthing Chamber Choir, and dancing and carousing ’til late over rustic Elizabethan victuals to the vibrant Kate’s Kitchen Band.

On Sunday morning you can have ‘Coffee With Shakespeare’s Queens’, the good the bad and the ugly. In the afternoon delve into the lovely world of Elizabethan music and song, with a workshop, open to all comers, to learn some authentic songs and rounds the great Bard himself would have enjoyed.

Booking via is open.
