Wat je gaat doen

Would you like to tour Stratford with a professional Shakespearean? Come with me on a tour of the town which will open your eyes, both to the Stratford that Shakespeare would have experienced as a boy, and the exciting theatre town it is today.

The tour will start at the Jester statue at the top of Henley Street, right beside Shakespeare's Birthplace. We will begin with a conversation about what you know so far about Stratford's famous son. Then we will wander down the pedestrian street while I point out key features of the Birthplace and give you a chance to take a picture beside the latest statue of the great man.

Next we will walk to New Place, Shakespeare's school and Hall's Croft, all sites that are currently closed to visitors but which can be viewed from outside while I discuss their importance. Once we reach Holy Trinity Church, the site of Shakespeare's grave, we will have covered all seven ages of this man.

Walking back along the Avon we will switch to discussing the history of the Royal Shakespeare Company, passing The Other Place, the Swan Theatre and the Royal Festival Theatre. I will given you an insight into the rich performance history of the town and a few hints about where actors can usually be sighted.

Note: the paths we take are all very accessible but we will be on our feet for the full hour and a half.

I am a Shakespeare academic who specialises in Performande History. I have taught hundreds of students in both English and Drama Departments and published widely on the plays in performance. After more than two decades of teaching I decided to take early retirement in early 2020.

So my knowledge of the plays is extensive and I am always keen to talk to others who are passionate about Shakespeare's work. However, as a teacher, I am even more keen to speak to those who know nothing about the man or his plays. I hope to give you a new appreciation to take away with you.

Waar je naartoe gaat

The tour will begin with the statues and houses related to Shakespeare in the centre of town. We will travel from his Birthplace to the Church where he was laid to rest. This will provide an opportunity to consider the famous 'seven ages of man' speech from 'As You Like it'.

On the return journey, along Waterside, we will consider Shakespeare's theatrical career and the performance history of his plays, including their current relevance.

This was a very informative tour for anyone interested in Shakespeare’s biography or his time in Stratford. Christie was a very knowledgeable guide and an expert on the subject matter.

Christie is clearly very knowledgeable and personable. She made the tour very interesting and enjoyable for my daughters (age 14 and 10) even though they’d not done much Shakespeare previously. I’d recommend a tour with her to others visiting Stratford.

Christie's knowledge added alot to understanding the Stratford area's history, buildings, statues and architecture and not just related to Shakespeare but to others in the area also. Recommended.

I loved how I was able to start to understand Shakespeare’s thinking and his desire to challenge the thinking of his day which is still so needed today. And, in doing this learn how his approach has endured. It made me think how works of art so often endure over time and perhaps increase in value. Why do we so often value art so little, in terms of what we invest in? Perhaps when it is when it is born through struggle and adversity enduring value is created.

We had a tour on our first day in Stratford Upon Avon and it was brilliant. Christie was knowledgeable, friendly and engaging. Made it really easy to get out and about afterwards. She answered all our questions and we didn't feel rushed despite managing to basically see everything!
