The Shakespeare and The Shed

Shakespeare Hotel, Stratford

The Shakespeare Hotel, some time after it was delicenced in 1886,
and became a "Temperance Hotel"

For History Week, we are having a special opening on Sunday 23 October, 1pm to 4pm, The Shakespeare and The Shed. Ron Martin's exciting scale model of the Shakespeare Hotel will be on public display for the first time (we have worked out how to get it through the door!), and The (Extended) Shed will be open, with access to our usually restricted storage area.

We are a bit excited about the storage area - George has been inventing/building again. We are also excited about having the scale model on display - the Shakespeare disappeared many years ago, and this will give people an opportunity to gain some understanding about size of the complex.

You can see an 1855 plan of the site HERE.

We will also be open, as usual, on Tuesday 25th October, 10am to 3pm.
