Discover a bank where the wild thyme blows this Shakespeare Week


Did you know it's Shakespeare Week? From March 12th to 18th 2018, the great works of the bard are being celebrated all over the world.

One of his best-known plays, A Midsummer Night's Dream, is the subject of a special walk in the woods suggested by the Woodland Trust and the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.

Get familiar with the play's characters then head out into the wilderness to spot magical-looking plants, trees and even fairies. What does the ground feel like? Is it soft enough to sleep on? Can you see any plants that Puck might use to make spells? How about making an outdoor theatre in a clearing to tell stories or put on your own production?

The project is part of the Woodland Trust's Green Tree Schools Award and schools can earn points by getting involved, but this would be a fantastic family activity any time. Download the plant spotter sheet and get enchanted.
