Presented by Canterbury Shakespeare Festival

The second play in Shakespeare's first history cycle, Henry IV, Part I deals with the aftermath of Richard II.

Henry Bolingbroke, now king, has been having a troubled reign, and increasing tensions with Hotspur and the Percy family suggests a rebellion is coming. The king is further troubled by Prince Hal’s reckless behaviour in the company of the fat knight Falstaff…

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.
