This walking tour through Trinity College will offer a cultural history of Shakespeare in the early years of Melbourne, with a focus on Trinity’s beautiful Shakespeare-themed lead light windows.

Highlights of the tour, which will be led by Shakespeare scholars Dr David McInnis (Faculty of Arts) and Dr Gayle Allan (Deputy Dean of Trinity College), will include a complimentary high tea at the college and a demonstration of simple performance exercises that will bring the Bard to life.

Come along if you're interested in Shakespeare and would like to know more about the role his name and works played in early Melbourne.

Arrival information, including map, will be emailed to registrants in the lead-up to the event.
