Arrived safely at Stratford. We were really excited when we saw the centre because it was near Shakespeare's birthplace and it looked very welcoming. It was so hot we had to eat our lunch outside on the picnic benches!
This afternoon we went on a tour of Stratford on an open topped red bus with the amazing Gwen who was a font of information about Shakespeare and Stratford. We were lucky that the sun continued to shine down on us. We saw lots of sights including Shakespeare's birthplace, his wife's family home, the clock tower and lots of Tudor buildings. At Adam Palmer's farm the guides were dressed in Tudor costume.
We have met Bill and his team and have already some important acting skills including facial expressions, balance and voice projection.
Important matters - Tea we ate a great 3 course meal which was delicious.
Grace said "I love Stratford," we had a vote and everyone agreed!
Photos to follow tomorrow.
