Hamlet in the Herb Garden 
Hamlet is Shakespeare’s longest play; at over 4000 lines, it would take around four hours to perform in full. The English Department will reduce this to just half an hour. Different combinations of pupils and staff will deliver a semi-staged reading of excerpts of the play, set against the beautiful backdrop of the Cathedral Herb Garden.
