We're inviting you and the children in your life to take part in Shakespeare Week (12 to 16 March 2018) by helping us make a soothing lullaby based on Shakespeare's dreamy language.


Here’s how to be part of our Shakespeare lullaby…

dreamy-quotesAt some point this week, take a bedtime moment with the children in your life to: 

   *  Read the dreamy quotes (right) together

   *  Have a chat about what they might mean

   *  Ask which ones the children like most

   *  Record the children reading them 

Send your recording - video or audio - by 5pm on Sunday 18 March 2018 to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it .

Or you can send it via direct message on Facebook or Twitter.

Your recording will be part of a lullaby montage, which will be uploaded to the 1623 website and social media channels in the week beginning Monday 19 March 2018.

If you’d like us to mention you and the children in the montage, please send us your names, ages and location.

There’s no need to edit out any prompting or mistakes in your recording – it’s all part of the joy of bringing Shakespeare’s words to life!

We hope you enjoy taking part and we look forward to receiving your recording.

By submitting your recording to 1623, you are giving the company permission to share it online.
