The Bard’s Not That Hard is the perfect way to introduce and rediscover the inspiring world of William Shakespeare and find out why his remarkable plays are still being performed 400 years on. Delivered by theatre professionals, GSC’s fun and practical evening classes are designed to help you discover The Bard in a fun and supportive environment.

"A truly special term, there was a real sense of friendship and community created."


We explore Shakespeare’s great plays through close reading, group discussion and practical exercises in our professional rehearsal room.

This is not an acting class and there will be tea and biscuits!
