The art of storytelling goes back to ancient times and can be traced from Greek and Roman works, through timeless Shakespeare, and up to more modern pieces such as I’ll Keep the Light. Many of Shakespeare’s works can be obtained for for your Nook, Kindle, or iPad from the Feedbooks community platform, these ebooks are freely available for personal use and are ready formatted for your device:

Another accessible route for a fresh perspective on Shakespeare is the recent BBC R4 programme My Own Shakespeare, which is still available on MP3 podcast:

Whatever you do this summer in Garnethill, make sure you and your family do not miss out on the excellent programme of theatre workshops and live outdoor performances, which might best be described as a dish fit for the gods.

Many thanks to Michael-Alan Read and his colleagues from the Cardboard Fox Theatre Company who have worked hard to make this programme happen.
