New Tempest Club started as a reading club - a place to come together and read Shakespeare and then make a show! It is evolving and developing in partnership with the University of Winchester into 2013/14 but for images and info from past NTC productions see below.
"I became involved in New Tempest Club in my first year of University. Back then in late 2009 it was simply 'Tempest Club', a group that met regularly to read and discuss Shakespeare together. Our reading groups progressed and soon there were plans in place to put on a performance. We have since created versions of The Tempest, The Comedy of Errors and Hamlet. Being a part of New Tempest Club has helped me develop as an actor and as a person and has provided opportunities that wouldn't have otherwise come my way. Whether it be reading Shakespeare in the pub or performing it in local venues around The South, New Tempest Club has always been a fun, enriching and worthwhile experience." - Craig Chalmers
