Shakespeare Week

This week Shakespeare productions have been on virtual tour in the Peak District. We have seen two great productions from London and Stratford. On Wednesday it was Henry V starring Alex Hassell from the RSC at Stratford, which we saw at Tideswell Cinema.

On Thursday, it was Hamlet with Benedict Cumberbatch in the title role. We saw the fastest selling show in London at Cinemac in Macclesfield.

OK, they were not in the actual theatre, but a 30 min journey, £10 a seat, and a close-up view of the characters makes the experience more than worthwhile.
