We climbed aboard the Ashmolean and explored the high seas with Creation Theatre! With 2016 marking the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death and Creation Theatre's 20th birthday, the event involved live performances of famous storms in the bard’s plays. We discovered the treasures of the Ashmolean, and enjoyed live performances, music, hands on creative workshops, and behind-the-scenes talks.
'It Came From The Sea' fancy dress theme, with prizes for the best costume!
