Shakespeare Goes Global for 2012 London Olympics
As part of the London 2012 Cultural Olympics, an amazing festival of 37 Shakespeare plays in 37 languages kicked off this week on Shakespeare's birthday, Monday 23rd April. Performances will take place not only at The Globe, but at venues all over Britain.
As the biggest Shakespeare festival ever, this is a landmark event that every schoolchild should know about! Although most children won't have the opportunity to enjoy a festival play at first hand, there are plenty of other ways of making Shakespeare accessible to even the youngest child. Here are links to some of our favourite children's editions of Shakespeare:
