The King’s Lynn Shakespeare Festival

Friday 26th to Sunday 28th April, 2019

St George’s Guildhall, King Street, King’s Lynn PE30 1HA

​

Join us for the first King’s Lynn Shakespeare Festival. Over three days in April 2019, the works of the Bard will be celebrated in workshops, performance and discussion in the very theatre where it is thought that the great playwright himself performed in 1592.

​

The weekend will feature guests from stage and academia to honour Shakespeare’s connection with the town, with two guest performances by Sir Ian McKellen. 

It is hosted by one of the most respected Shakespearean actors of his generation, Andrew Jarvis.
