Can you swear like Shakespeare?

Hear Hear! Wait no more, kids! This is what’s happening in the upcoming school holidays at Wellington City Libraries…

Silly sonnets, ridiculous rhymes and preposterous plays… Celebrate Shakespeare!apr16-shakespeare-300

2016 marks the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. Throughout this year we will be celebrating Shakespeare, starting with the April School Holidays.

Adults: cover your ears!

Kids: want to have a go at swearing and insulting each other like Shakespeare? Come along to the library holiday events to have a go at our Shakespearean Insult Generator. We’re sure you will get a laugh out of it. We’ll also be looking at all the strange words Shakespeare invented, and have a go at writing with ink and quills (so don’t wear your best clothes).

If you miss this you’ll be a loggerheaded clay-brained measle!
