In honour of the two world-class sporting events currently taking place, we at the bookshop thought it would be nice to give a brief description of what football and tennis were like in Shakespeare’s time. Roxanne talks, below, about sport and Shakespeare.
The link to the Brian Blessed clip follows:
Alison Sim’s Pleasures and Pastimes in Tudor England is on sale in The Shakespeare Bookshop for the bargain price of £1.99.
And, of course, several editions (some better than others) of Henry V can be purchased at various prices (some better than others).
