Sitting Where Shakespeare Sat

Shakespeare´s Schoolroom is a fantastic, evocative tourist attraction right in the heart of Stratford-Upon-Avon, and that´s where I was, launching a new, nationwide competition, last week.

The Schoolroom, which includes the Guildhall – most of that longblack and white building behind me – was where Shakespeare was taught. I was back there with a group of local schoolchildren to launch a new competition. Full details can be found here.

Can´t wait to start reading the entries – winners get their name in Cold Fire, the next Shakespeare´s Moon book (about Romeo and Juliet) – so please share if you know anyone between the ages of 11 and 17 who might want to take part.
