We bid you welcome to our Barbican Shakespeare Weekender for two activity-packed days as boisterous and subversive as Shakespearean drama.
Filling our spaces with playful experiences, interactive workshops, insightful talks, fun installations and performances with a difference, Play On offers something for everyone.
Shakespeare is the starting point but our featured artists and their modern responses to the playwright’s world take centre stage. Drawn from theatre, dance, art and music, they gather here from around the UK. So, drop in or spend the day with us, dipping into a multitude of surprising and offbeat events; even the food will be Shakespeare-inspired. We’re throwing open our doors to celebrate the playwright’s legacy – come, join our good company.
11am – 6pm (Sat 5 & Sun 6 Mar)
