Shakespeare – from Reading to Performance

Many of the history’s greatest speeches have been consigned to sound bites. We all know the words “I have a dream”, “the lady’s not for turning” and “we shall fight on the beaches” but have we heard the speech that made those words immortal? Do we know the context in which those famous orators spoke? Over the course of the evening five speeches will be performed live. Each will be paired with a beer by our very own beer expert, Tim Livesey, and preceded by music of the era and a short introduction to the context in which these great speeches were delivered.

Meet in the Telegraph Hill Playclub, Lower Park
(separate entrance off Erlanger Road)

7:30-9:30pm £5 (£2.50)
(Includes a glass of wine)
