Today we caught a coach up to Stratford-Upon-Avon. The day began with a visit to Harvard House, built by wealthy merchant, Thomas Rogers in 1596. His grandson went on to be one of the founding benefactors of Harvard University.

Their day continued with a tour of Shakespeare's Birthplace followed by their first taste of traditional fish & chips on the riverside for lunch.

This afternoon they attended an excellent workshop by the Royal Shakespeare Company. Here students looked at the range of techniques for interpreting and understanding Shakespeare's language in Macbeth. Two students also used this opportunity to perform their chosen pieces for the Shakespeare by Heart Competition and get some valuable tips before this house event next Friday back in Beijing.

Finally we took a short walk down the river to Holy Trinity Church, the place of Shakespeare's grave and Halls Croft, the beautifully furnished home of Shakespeare’s daughter Susanna and her husband, Dr John Hall.

It's fair to say the students absolutely loved Stratford-Upon-Avon!
