Pull back the curtain to uncover secrets and stories from 100 years of theatre at the Royal Shakespeare Company. Perfect for any little luvvies in the gang!
All aspects of the company are opened up for families with an interactive exhibition and a veritable treasure trove of curiosities and artefacts. See the costumes and props used on their hallowed stage, or get right up close to rare copies of Shakespeare's first folio. Like the old adage, this exhibit is entitled 'The Play's The Thing' and you can get 2-for-1 tickets with Day Out With The Kids.
Aspiring actors can try on virtual costumes within the ‘magic mirror’ and even perform in front of a live - virtual - audience! Then there’s a trip up the Theatre Tower, a trail to follow and plenty of free activities throughout the building.
