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.

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.

Christie was very informative about Stratford and Shakespeare’s life. She has a great personality and was very easy to ask questions to and talk to. She knew a lot of knowledge about the area and various Shakespearean plays which was very nice to talk about! I would definitely recommend this to people that want to get to know Shakespeare’s life and various plays.

Christie is extremely knowledgeable and friendly. She answered all of our questions (and there were many!) and was very patient. She sprinkled the tour with some additional useful information and spots outside of Shakespeare that were helpful for our visit. This was really good value for money and highly recommend it

Christie was friendly and informative and easy to listen to. We felt engaged as we walked around the significant Shakespeare locations in Stratford. It was an interesting hour and a half. Would recommend Christie and the tour!

Christie was very knowledgable about everything Shakespeare, as I expected! She was friendly, chatty and always open to questions. I was the only one on the tour and I remembered a tiny bit about Shakespeare from my years in school, but had forgotten a lot so she tailored the tour to me, which was brilliant! She even tested my knowledge a little at certain points, which has inspired me to begin reading his plays again. It was a great experience and I would highly recommend it to others.
