Which places do you love?

Who would you write a sonnet about?

The RSC want to know – we’re working with the arts organisation, Curious, to gather up Stratford’s love stories.

Shakespeare’s sonnets, each fourteen lines long, are some of the most famous love poems ever written.

Your stories, alongside Shakespeare’s sonnets, will become the inspiration for a unique floating theatrical performance, created by Curious, to take place on the River Avon.

In addition, fourteen local people (and their loves) will be selected to have their portraits taken by arts photographer Hugo Glendinning, and these images will make up the 14 Lines of Love exhibition in the Swan Gallery at the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. Both events will take place in August.


1. Choose your place or person.
The place must be local to Stratford-Upon-Avon (within Stratford or Warwick District Council boundaries)  – it could be the sunny spot in your back garden, a favourite bench in the park or a coffee shop in town. If you’re chosen, the photograph will be of you in that place.
Or you could choose a person who is special to you.

2. Write a paragraph or two describing:
who that person or place is; what are the special things about that place or person; and why you would like a portrait of that place or person to be part of the exhibition.
You could even try writing in sonnet form if you like!

3. Send your paragraph to Nicky Cox, Events Co-ordinator, RSC, Royal Shakespeare Theatre, Southern Lane, Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwickshire, CV37 6BB.
