2016 Words and Music Festival: Celebrating Shakespeare

Throughout the 400 years that have followed the life’s work of William Shakespeare, writers, musicians, filmmakers and artists have been inspired to revive, adapt and frequently re-write his words. 

Shakespeare was so many things – a poet, historian, social commentator and humourist. His plays encompass travel, sorcery, economics and the extremes of humanity – its joy and its sorrows. 

Our festival, Celebrating Shakespeare included the 2016 Words and Music Festival held in partnership with the Suzanne Sparrow Language School. It presented music, films, research and performances set in the context of 18th century English theatre, 20th century world cinema and jazz, and 21st century comedy and songs.
