Bring a little magic to
14 to 20 March 2016
We're calling out to all primary-school teachers, children and their families across the nation to become Magical Creature Makers as part of Shakespeare Week, which takes place from Monday 14 to Sunday 20 March 2016.
Taking inspiration from Peaseblossom, Cobweb, Moth and Mustardseed - the fairies in Shakespeare's A Midsummer Night's Dream - we're inviting you to dream up and draw your very own magical creatures, give them a name and send them to us.
When we've received your creatures, we'll add them to a magical creature portrait gallery on our website for you and other people to enjoy in Shakespeare Week and beyond.
Draw and colour your very own magical creatures on our template, which you can download by clicking here.
Your magical creature drawings need to reach us by Friday 18 March, so that we can include them in the enchanted forest before the end of Shakespeare Week (14-20 March).
Please send your drawings by post to:
245 Durham Road
While won't be able to return your drawings to you in the post, they'll be displayed in the magical creatures portrait gallery on our website.
