The new Shakespeare Festival in Suffolk UK

SHAKE is a new Shakespeare Festival at The Cut in Halesworth, Suffolk, UK.

The creative director is Jenny Hall. Her father Sir Peter Hall founded the Royal Shakespeare Company. The idea for SHAKE came from the late James Holloway, aristic director of The Cut. His vision, inspiration and generosity will be much missed.

SHAKE is for everybody: students, professionals, amateurs and people who are just a bit curious.

Why is Shakespeare the most successful fiction writer of all time? Come and find out.

Workshops, films, talks with Q&A, music, poetry readings, dance, performance, and feasting!

With many grateful thanks to our Friends, Volunteers and Supporters: Victoria Seale Jones, Genevieve Christie, Sara Keene, Diana Hiddleston, Janine Edge, Carol and Oscar Graves-Johnston, Lysie Kihl, Julia Sowerbutts, Caroline Wiseman, Rob Gildon and Colin at Benhall Lodge Estate Office. Most of all to Peter, Sam, Aafke and Simon Raven at The Cut.

• SHAKE Festival is generously funded by Suffolk County Council (Benhall), East Suffolk Council, The Mackintosh Foundation, Spectra Packaging, Charnwood Milling Company Ltd, and Micronizing Company Ltd in Framlingham
