Christopher Lloyd takes you on a hilarious exploration of Shakespeare's most fabulous works!


Christopher graduated with a double first in history from Cambridge in 1990 and went on to become the Technology Editor for The Sunday Times. He left in 2000 to become CEO of Immersive Education in Oxford before becoming an author in 2006. His best selling history of the world, called What on Earth Happened? (Bloomsbury 2008) is now in 15 languages and has sold more than 500,000 copies worldwide. He established his own publishing house What on Earth Publishing in Spring 2010 and has published a series of timelines in collaboration with illustrator Andy Forshaw covering history, nature, science, sport, Shakespeare and Magna Carta. Christopher is now in great demand as a lecturer and storyteller in schools, museums and at literary festivals throughout the UK and abroad. He divides his time between lecturing and writing.

How many plays did Shakespeare write? Which feature ghosts? Which are non-fiction and which are made up? Using the new 'What on Earth? Wallbook Timeline of Shakespeare', published in collaboration with The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, Christopher Lloyd explores the world of human emotion using different coloured pockets in an all-new coat to represent jealousy (green), anger (red), riches (gold), love (purple), terror (white) and magic (black). Using a series of props hidden inside the pockets, children and adults alike explore the world of Shakespeare as a gateway to the entire spectrum of human nature – with plenty of scope for audience participation
