The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust:  The History of our Collection and our Town

Join the Collections Team to learn about how our world-class designated collection has developed and to see examples from different parts of our holdings, including local documents, museum items and early printed books that are normally only seen in exhibition cases. We hold over 800 years of Stratford history and the session will include everything from archaeology, to the Borough Records, to local business archives and the Stratford Herald. After a 30 - 40 minute presentation you will have the opportunity to browse, meet staff, ask questions and take photos.  We will also offer trips to the Reading Room for anyone interested in looking out our open access items and learning how they might use the collection in future.

Our Hospitality Team will be on hand with refreshments after the talk.
