shakespeare school’s festival

It was very moving and heartening to watch The Merchant of Venice by the lovely children of the Michael Tippett School for the shakespeare school’s festival –  it was one of the 3 productions showing alongside my own daughters school.  I love that organisations like this exist to not only keep Shakespeare alive amongst our youth,  but to also give them the opportunity to use these plays to relay passionate storytelling and take part in group performances.   All the children who participated were special in some way, but it does make me proud to be British when i see that we include all children from all backgrounds and walks of life to work together.

i love this old shakespeare book that robert bought me when we first met – its dated 1907, but i love the words of the opening page.
