We are delighted to announce the launch of The Williams Nicolson Award 2022.
We strongly believe live theatre and active workshops are crucial educational tools to engage with Shakespeare's verse.
That's why we are partnering with communications consultancy Williams Nicolson to offer 6 FREE WORKSHOP PACKAGES to schools across England. The award aims to ensure underfunded and underrepresented schools can access quality Shakespearean education from working theatre practitioners.
Thanks to the generosity of Williams Nicolson, these unique educational packages are funded in full.
We will be holding three rounds for the award in 2022.
Please see below for dates and further details.
“Shakespeare was the most influential writer in the history of our language. He invented thousands of words we use today. Without Shakespeare, we wouldn’t have ‘swagger’ or ‘bedazzle’ or ‘fashionable’. And words make worlds. At Williams Nicolson, we are passionate about the power of language to change minds and make business better. We are thrilled to support Bard in the Yard as they teach us all how to better connect and communicate, one performance at a time.”
Louise Nicolson, Founder, Williams Nicolson
