Musical midwinter camp at Shakespeare New Place in Stratford

A MUSICAL midwinter camp is set to take visitors to Shakespeare’s New Place back in time.

The Festival of Lost and Found is a theatrical experience from Coventry-based group Talking Birds, running from December 11 to 15.

Hosting is the great-great-great grand-daughter of 18th century actor David Garrick, who needs help to realise her dream of finally hosting the grand pageant cancelled during her ancestor’s Shakespeare Jubilee of 1769 because of heavy rain.

Visitors are taken around the camp as they hunt for clues to find the missing poem that will be the centrepiece of her dream show.

Performances take place at 6pm with 4pm matinees on December 13 and 14. There will be a British Sign Language (BSL) interpreter at the 6pm show on December 14.

Tickets are £12 (£8 children).
