Shakespeare Fest, 2020

Club Literati was honoured to organise its signature event, Bhopal Shakespeare Festival, for the sixth year in a row! This year’s celebration of our Bard was a four-day virtual ordeal, running from April 23rd to April 26th, and was attended by literarians all over.

DAY 1 witnessed everyone on their toes with an enthralling quiz on the Bard, Will Power!
The quiz grew exciting by the second as the participants attempted to answer each question in time as less as 35 seconds!
On DAY 2, our attendees stirred the Shakespeare in themselves as they composed their very own Shakespearean sonnets! The legend found discourse through many of our members as they read their favourite sonnets by him. Shakespeare on the Podcast truly revealed the talents lying latent in our friends, promising us many more compositions in the future!

The Globe Theatre, our event for DAY 3, focussed on the infamous Monologues and Soliloquies that are Shakespeare’s unparalleled contribution to the world of literature.
To be or not to be, that is the question!

On the last day of our cherished fest, the Bard went Bollywood! Famous Shakespearean plays were recast with renowned Bollywood artists. DAY 4 drew to a close with A Wish for William, a drawing competition where the participants illustrated their incredible skills.
Although this year’s Shakespeare Fest was virtual, the spirit of the occasion did not change. It was curated observing the present scenario across our world.

Club Literati is humbled to be offering this unique blend of modernity and classicism to Bhopal every year. We congratulate all our winners and look forward to seeing them every year!
