A-Level English Trip
The English department took a group of A-Level students to the Hamlet conference, run by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust in Stratford, a couple of weeks ago. It was a day of interactive and vibrant presentations and lectures by professors in Shakespeare studies, exploring the richness of the language, contexts and performances of ‘Hamlet’ across the ages. It gave the students some valuable new perspectives on interpreting the play and its theatrical aspects. It was a thoroughly engaging day.
