Shakespeare Week at Dringhouses Library
22nd May 2017 @ 2:00 pm - 6:00 pm Free
As part of the York international Shakespeare Festival, Dringhouses Library is having Shakespeare Week.
See an exhibition of local artist Ben Sawyer’s amusing Shakespeare-inspired comic-strips all week.
Zounds, Alack, and By My Troth is a weekly series of comic strips inspired by the works of William Shakespeare and drawn in old school black and white penciling. The site features pastiches of famous moments, illustrated sonnets and the continuing adventures of Will himself as he tries to get by as a jobbing Tudor playwright – aided and abetted by the mysterious wild-haired woman known only as The Lady.
Join us for some Shakespeare style songs and stories at our under 5s storytimes at 11am on Thursday 25 and Saturday 27, and sign up for our Shakespeare-a-thon on Tuesday 23 May, where we try to fill the building with Shakespeare’s timeless words all day – sign up at the library for a time-slot.
The Shakespeare-a-thon will be on all day Tuesday – come along and read some of Shakespeare’s fabulous work. Choose an extract from his 38 plays, sonnets, or poems, and read for 5-10 minutes. Sign up for a timeslot in advance or just turn up on the day. Help us to fill the library with Shakespeare’s wonderful words all day.
Come to our launch event then please come along during normal library opening times for our Shakespeare week long events.
