Is the Bard "Not of an age, but for all time"?
Date: Saturday 17th October
“Be not afraid of greatness. Some are born great, some achieve greatness, and others have greatness thrust upon them.” Is the Bard of Stratford the greatest of playwrights? How will his plays, sonnets and cultural influences take shape over the next fifty years and beyond. Join our lively panel of Shakespeare ‘players’ who will discuss if our local literary icon and his 400 year old stories can still inspire future generations. Can we expect to see Shakespeare in space or on Mars?!
