Home Whats On In West Norfolk? NEW SUMMER FUN AT UK’S OLDEST WORKING THEATRE

NEW SUMMER FUN AT UK’S OLDEST WORKING THEATRE

Throughout the summer, Stories of Lynn and Norfolk Museums Service with support from the Borough Council are providing an exciting and fun programme of Shakespeare-inspired activities to engage young people and their families both with the work of The Bard, and the history of one of King’s Lynn’s most treasured historic assets – St George’s Guildhall. 

The activities are split into two different age groups: Play in a day for 11-25 year olds; and Shake it all out for 5-12 year olds – who must be accompanied by an adult.

Play in a Day 
£3 per session.  Sessions run 10:30am to 2pm. Refreshments provided but bring your own lunch.

Thursday 11 August – A Midsummer Night’s Dream
Thursday 18 August – Macbeth

Explore the St George’s Guildhall theatre, listen to the story, then get in character. Make a prop, try on a costume and makeup, and learn and perform three short scenes from the play.

Shake it all out
£2 per child, accompanying adult free. Sessions run 10:30am – 11:45am, 12:30pm to -1:45pm and 2pm to 3:15pm.  Recommended for ages 5–12. All those attending a session must be accompanied by an adult at all times.

Explore St George’s theatre, enjoy a short, family friendly version of the story, then get involved with activities inspired by each play, before dressing up and delivering your lines on stage.
