NAWE Conference 2016

11–13 November, Stratford-upon-Avon, UK 

The NAWE Annual Conference will take place this year in the beautiful medieval town of Stratford-upon Avon during the Shakespeare 400 celebrations. It will feature the exclusive screening of excerpts from the stunning new film of Macbeth, with director Kit Monkman in conversation with Judith Buchanan, leading expert on Shakespeare on film.



Booking for the full conference with accommodation has now closed. There are a few rooms still available on the Saturday night: if you would like to reserve one, please contact Clare Mallorie

It is still possible to book day places, although the venue may put a limit on these too. We are giving a deadline of 22 October but this may need to close earlier if capacity is reached. Book here.

Comments received from those who attended last year's conference in Durham:

"It was by far the best conference I’ve ever been to and my brain is still buzzing and fizzing with excitement and inspiration."

"wonderfully well organized, and such a pleasure to be at and to meet up with so many good friends"

"It's been the best thing I've done all year. And given me such inspiration to meet so many generous practitioners with ideas and tips in such diverse areas. I've even been writing solidly since I got back too!"

"It made a real difference to where I currently am with things. And it's been wonderful to connect with warm, generous people and the fabulous work that NAWE does."  

"I love the diversity of approaches. I very much enjoyed the Conference and have brought home much food for thought."
