As part of Canterbury Shakespeare Festival 2024...

Rosalind, banished by her uncle, escapes with her cousin Celia into the Forest of Arden, where her father is living in exile with members of his court, alongside simple country folk. There, dressed as a boy, Rosalind encounters Orlando, the man she loves, and tests his feelings for her while maintaining her disguise. Thanks to the redeeming effect of the pastoral setting, various pairs of lovers are eventually happily united. This production of the play will be set in the 1960s, when the hippy culture rejected the status quo, advocating ‘flower power’, nonviolence and love as alternatives to the restrictions of traditional society.

CSF: As You Like It

Thu 25 - Sat 27 July


ART31 takes its name from Article 31 of the UN Convention on the Rights of a Child, which states that ‘Children have the right to relax and play, and to join in a wide range of cultural, artistic and other recreational activities’.

ART31 is a vision created with, by, and for young people in Kent, championing the belief that all children and young people have an entitlement to access high quality arts and culture, to empower them to achieve their creative potential, and to genuinely engage young people as equal partners in any decision making that affects them.

The ART31 Youth Board is made up of young people from across Kent aged 13-25 who steer its governance, and influence policy and practice across the county and beyond, challenging the creative sector to examine existing ways of working and integrate young people into the core of their practice.
