ALL the world's a stage, or will be at a Northwich museum when it invites families to explore Tudor theatre during the summer holidays.

Weaver Hall Museum, in London Road, is holding workshops on Wednesday, August 20, and Thursday, August 21.

Budding playwright Walter Spearshake, played by the museum's education officer Tom Hughes, will be casting new actors for his latest plays and looking for visitors to take on starring roles.

He will help children find out how sound effects were created in Elizabethan theatre and explore how music was a key part of plays of the time.

A range of props will be available to help families rehearse famous lines from Tudor plays and a craft activity will allow visitors to create a print block for a playbill to advertise the new shows.

Families can drop into the event any time between 10am and 4pm on the two days.

Visit weaverhallmuseum.org.uk for more information or ring 01606 271640.
