Wellness event aims to bring Stratford's youth to Hall's Croft

Leamington Editorial 8th Sep, 2023   0

YOUTHS are being encouraged through the doors of Hall’s Croft in Stratford for a new wellness event.

The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust is holding its first free ‘’New Wave’’ event at the property on Friday September 15.

Mixing history and wellness, the event has been developed in collaboration with local youngster Menna Jones and explores the concept of Tudor health and wellness, as well as providing a safe place for youths to socialise.

Young people aged between 16 and 25-year-old are invited to relax, get creative, and enjoy a mocktail as they explore the grounds of Hall’s Croft, once home of William Shakespeare’s daughter, Susanna Hall, and her husband, Dr John Hall.

SBT spokesperson Jennifer Shufflebotham said: “Working with Menna and holding this event is important as it helps to connect young people with Shakespeare and reduce social isolation by bringing local youth together.

‘’As an organisation we are committed to making our spaces more inclusive and broadening our appeal to audiences that we’ve previously found challenging to connect with. This year, it was vital that we gave young adults a voice, inviting them to co-create an event tailored to their interests.

‘’It was fantastic working with Menna to co-curate an event that pushes the boundaries of people’s expectations.”

Activities include a flower crown-making workshop and a chill out zone accompanied by a Midsummer Night’s Dream-inspired soundscape.
