Kingston Shakespeare is proud to announce a collaboration with Garrick’s Temple at Hampton in organising Shakespeare and philosophy events. It was David Garrick’s dream to host Enlightenment luminaries, like Voltaire, at the shrine he built to Shakespeare in 1756.

 

Unlike regular Kingston Shakespeare events, these events at the Temple will have an admittance donation of £10. All the money will be used for the event catering and to support  the Temple. But the event will be nominally free.

 

The first event will be on September 3, 2016 and is entitled ‘Shakespeare and the Enlightenment’. Confirmed speakers are Paul Kottman (New School), Edward Chaney (Southampton Solent), and Kiernan Ryan (Royal Holloway).

 

Mark your diaries, more information will follow soon. See the event page on Facebook!

 

If you are wanting to talk or present at this event on Shakespeare and on aspects of the Enlightenment, we welcome suggestions for contributions.
