Last week, Redditch Library celebrated Shakespeare week with activities for schools and visitors.
15 pupils from Woodfield Academy marked 455 since Shakespeare's birth by acting out a of few scenes from A Midsummer Night’s Dream using basic props and simple prompts.
The children took it in turns to tell stories of their own, had a go at guessing the meanings of some of Shakespeare's own lost words and played a few games of " Wake when some vile thing is near" also known as blind man's bluff.
Mrs Curtis, Librarian at Woodfield Academy said: "The children had a wonderful time at the workshop. Staff were wonderful with the pupils and made A Midsummer Night's Dream fun and accessible. The children are still buzzing and thought it was awesome. “
Children visiting Redditch library on Saturday 23rd March were given the opportunity to make Fairy crowns and wands while wearing wings and listening to a retelling of A Midsummer Night’s Dream.
Training for these events was provided The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.
