-- The famous Falstaff Experience - Tudor World museum housed in a genuine Tudor building located in the heart of Stratford upon Avon is launching an exciting and free new initiative for pupils and parents. As part of their commitment to the 'Kids in Museums' manifesto the Falstaff Experience is delighted to begin to host after school clubs. Beginning in June with GCSE revision classes for Shakespeare, the museum will extend the program in September to all ages. On Thursday 9th June students studying Romeo and Juliet can book a free place for the one hour interactive revision workshop. The following week on Thursday 16th June the museum is holding a one hour interactive revision workshop on Macbeth. The sessions begin at 16:00 hrs and whilst the cost is free places are limited. Those wishing to attend are required to book in advance. From September the museum will be hosting literacy and and history after school clubs for children of all ages. This is a very new idea and unique in England to the Falstaff experience Tudor World. Education Officer Ben Pugh said "At the Falstaff Experience we are committed to adhering to the Kids in Museums manifesto. We are an exciting learning environment that can be very inspirational for students. Stratford is a lovely place to live and we are keen to give back to the local community. We have 3 former teachers on our staff and they are keen to pass on their knowledge in a new and motivational way. We already have a thriving education program for school visits, but what we hope is that this initiative will create the museum visitors of tomorrow."
