The event is organised by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and is aimed specifically at primary school pupils.

It seeks to bring the playwright and his works to life, offering a positive first experience of Shakespeare for children.

In the run-up to and during the week there are a number of events being planned by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust’s 12 regional hubs, as well as a celebratory event and free activities in the playwright’s home of Stratford-upon-Avon.

Teachers can also access free digital resources to use during the week, including lessons plans and ideas. There will be digital broadcasts of special events during the week too.
