Shakespeare: Leadership

King_Richard_II_from_NPG_(2)

  • Coriolanus                Nov 5
  • Julius Caesar            Nov 6
  • Richard II                  Nov 7
  • Henry IV, Part I       Nov 8
  • Henry V                     Nov 9

What makes a leader? Get beyond trivial management quotations. Read these five plays as a group and appreciate the subtlety of Shakespeare’s understanding. Five leaders with all their abilities and flaws come to life as they struggle with adversity, plotting and menace. It will keep us talking over dinner as we consider whether these tales of kingship have continuing relevance in our modern world.

  • 5 great walks
  • 5 great meals
  • 5 days of reading and discussion (this can go late if you are up for it!)
  • a free pack of material to accompany the orientations to the readings

There are five walks through the hills of Asturias, which will add an extra dimension to the readings.  Our top-class lunches use the best of local produce, with vegetables from our own organic gardens.

You can stay in one of our houses if you would like to. There are other options nearby. Just ask.
