A highlight of 2015 was a very special programme created for Cambridge. We celebrated 40 years of BBC's Arena - the highly influential and respected arts programme - with a 24 hour continuous programme.
What really happened during Shakespeare’s ‘Lost Years’? Could it be that after over 400 years the team behind the hit CBBC show Horrible Histories have the answer? A story of murderous kings, spies, lost loves, and a plot to blow up Queen Elizabeth I was apparently keeping Bill Shakespeare busy in the years before he became Britain’s best known playwright. Family drama of the best kind - one that can genuinely be enjoyed by all the family. At the 35th Festival we had the World Premiere of BILL with the cast in attendance!
