In autumn 2019, Shakespeare in Italy UK based founders Julian Curry and Mary Chater started running Snacking on Shakespeare sessions as #volunteers in #Brighton as part of the #LivingWellFestival for the #over50's.
People sat in a circle, read scenes, discussed them and then stood them up in pairs and / or for the group.
This follows the pattern of our #InternationalSummerSchools began in 2014 in Italy.
After running some classes in sheltered housing accommodation in downtown Brighton in Jan / Feb 2020, the first lockdown began.
Online sessions with #GettingTogetherMatters, part of UK charity #VolunteeringMatters started in October 2020 and numbers are growing all the time.
