The Cotswolds, Shakespeare and Me

William Shakespeare died in his home town of Stratford-upon-Avon on 23 April, 1616.
On occasion of the 400th anniversary of his death, here is our bow to the great Bard – from a somewhat unusual angle:We’re asking, how would Shakespeare vote if he had the chance at the British EU referendum on 23 June?

Our guest speaker Martin Kimber (Cheltenham, UK) will talk about “The Cotswolds, Shakespeare and Me, or: Was Shakespeare the First Great European?” and illustrate Shakespeare’s assumed voting intentions based on his and the Bard’s reverse parallel lives: Shakespeare from the northern tip of the Cotswolds who, after he got married, moved to South London where he made his fortune writing international best sellers; and Martin, born and bred in South London who, after getting married, moved to the Cotswolds and just wrote a few very bad limericks!

Martin Kimber has lived in Cheltenham in the beautiful Cotswolds since 1979. Having trained as a teacher of drama, he had a 40 year career in community education and youth work, during which time he organised many projects with EU funding for young people. Since retiring from his main job he has worked part time for the British Council and for the University of Gloucestershire.

Entry is free, all are welcome!

For a long time we have neglected the classics, so there is one finally up for reading! Dubliners is among those long line of books, that have been sitting on my shelves for absolute ages, so I am glad it was chosen. The collection of short stories about Dublin life were – according to the text on the cover – shocking to the readers at the time of publication, for me it is quite hard to get into. Anyhow, let’s see!

Join the book club anytime (you don’t need to sign anywhere, not to worry!), we are always glad to make new acquaintances & you can buy the book in the shoppe with a 10% discount!


Happy Easter to everyone!

We will open on Friday and Saturday from 2-6pm and stay closed on Sunday to enjoy a bit of egg hunting ourselves!
