Thistle in the enchanted forestWANT TO MAKE A MAGICAL CREATURE?

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.
