Design your own Shakespeare BookBench competition

Sunday the 31st August, 2014

Our BookBenches have been installed all over London for a few weeks now and each one is completely unique.

Books about Town have teamed up with Shakespeare’s Globe to inspire you to design your own BookBench with a Shakespeare theme.

Our Shakespeare BookBench sits proudly outside the Globe Theatre on the Riverside Trail, but what would your Shakespeare bench look like?

Take inspiration from one of the characters from the works of the great playwright, a famous quote or from the Globe Theatre itself. 

Download the handy BookBench template to get started, and scan or send a photo of your design to the Globe where they will share it on their website here.

Send your entry to the Globe by Sunday 31st August for a chance to win some fantastic prizes.

If you are selected as a winner you will be able to bring your family on a tour of the Globe Theatre and exhibition. Plus, you will also be given lots of goodies and books for your school.

Good luck!
