“I do love nothing in the world so well as you - is not that strange?"

Excitement is building here at The Reader Organisation as we anticipate the arrival of Shakespeare's Globe and their touring production of Much Ado About Nothing for five performances at the Garden Theatre, Calderstones Mansion House this June. If you haven't snapped up your tickets yet, then why not use the extra long weekend to take care of it? More information about the performances on Thursday 12th, Friday 13th and Saturday 14th June (includes matinee performances on Friday 13th and Saturday 14th June) can be found on the events calendar on our website: http://www.thereader.org.uk/courses

Ahead of the shows, we're running an extra special Short Course giving you the chance to get to grips with the play before you get to see it live. Join us on Saturday 7th June at Calderstones for a rip-roaring, confidence-boosting, all-embracing 'Play in a Day' where you can truly enjoy one of Shakespeare's liveliest comedies inside out.

Led by The Reader Organisation’s Founder and Director, Jane Davis, and a team of our Shakespeare-loving staff, we’ll be taking over Calderstones Mansion to read Much Ado together. And you never know, with your new-found confidence, you may even feel inspired to tread the boards yourself before the day is through!

No advance reading or prior knowledge of the play is required, and all ages are welcome.

Places on the course cost £30/£15 concessions (including lunch), with a special offer of a 10% discount if you bring along a friend who hasn't attended one of our Short Courses before. Please reference the name of your friend when making your booking.

To book your place, please contact Literary Learning Coordinator Jenny Kelly on jenniferkelly@thereader.org.uk or call 0151 207 7207.
