There will be quite a party for Shakespeare lovers at Hunstanton Town Hall on Wednesday, May 25, from 6.30-9pm.

Hunstanton & District Festival of Arts will be celebrating William Shakespeare’s 400th anniversary with a fun anthology of poems, plays, sketches, music and screenings – all based around the work of the Bard.

Several local companies have agreed to perform, and the town hall will hopefully be turned into the Globe Theatre for the evening.

If you or your group would like to take part either in the performances, with music and dancing and play readings all on the programme, or just helping out on the doors, contact Christine Earnshaw or Angela Blenkinsop for details at or

Elizabethan-type pies, cakes and ale will be on sale at the venue and the fun will begin at 6.30pm.

There will be a presentation of prizes for the sonnet-writing competition currently running in the town and a “Much Ado” Quiz! So don’t forget to “Brush up your Shakespeare!”

Suitable costume may be worn and there might even be a prize for the best one; admission to the event will be £5, free to under 16s.
