Much-loved storyteller Michael Morpurgo, creator of such popular stories as War Horse and Kensuke’s Kingdom, invites a new generation of readers to discover the magic of Shakespeare. Join Michael as he shares his retellings of Shakespeare’s plays, from Hamlet and Romeo and Juliet to A Midsummer Night’s Dream and The Winter’s Tale, all beautifully written in his unmistakably warm, accessible and inimitable style. This is the perfect introduction to the Bard and an unmissable event. Michael is in conversation with Vivian French.

Please note this is a family event. Adults accompanying under 16s go free.
