Our first annual programme continues this April as we join the national celebrations marking the 450th birthday of the world’s greatest playwright on 23 April.

All Bash events at St Mary's Church, Quarry Street

The Other Shakespeare SOLD OUT

Saturday 19 April, 7.15pm ~ £12

Our celebrations begin with a special one-woman show, The Other Shakespeare. Veteran GSC actor Johanne Murdock (Lady Macbeth, Puck, Gertrude, Queen Elizabeth) plays Will's wife Anne Hathaway-Shakespeare, in this touching, humorous and fascinating one-woman show written by Roy Chatfield.

Produced by Pitchfork Production. Directed by Ian Flintoff.

From Country Lad to Upstart Crow SOLD OUT

Wednesday 23 April, 7.45pm ~ £10

On the day itself, 23 April, GSC’s Co-Founder and actor Matt Pinches will be delivering a fun and informative illustrated talk about the Bard’s life BEFORE the theatre beckoned. Join us as we explore Will's home life in Stratford, the myth of the deer-poaching, a secret marriage, being the son of the Mayor, and his family links with the legendary Simon de Montfort!

The evening comes complete with a slice of birthday cake!

Comments from 2013 Walkers

Imagine a treasure hunt, where armed with just a map and a good dollop of bonhomie, walkers set off on an especially designed route around Guildford in small groups, encountering Shakespearean actors in the least likely of places.

Warning: Enjoyment of Sonnet Walks may be highly contagious, resulting in uncontrollable laughter and a desire to see more Shakespeare!

Each walk lasts approx. 60 mins and are every 15 minutes.

First walk 12.30pm; Last walk 3.15pm

All Birthday Bash events are staged at St Mary's Church, Quarry Street, Guildford.
