Shakespeare at the Wilderness school - part 2
To celebrate the millennium the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust encouraged schools and drama clubs all over the world to send in examples of the shakespeare they were doing, over 50 submissions were received and they are carefully archived in our collection.
