Shakespeare 400

04/14/2016

William Shakespeare died on 23 April 1616, and a huge range of events and exhibitions are going on to mark this anniversary. I’ve been doing some work for exhibition designers Real Studios who are helping the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust transform the site of New Place, Shakespeare’s last home in Stratford-upon-Avon and the place where he died.

There are many, many other Shakespeare related activities going on (a rather welcome break from the First World War centenaries), including the conservation of his will at the National Archives. Read this blog post about re-interpreting Shakespeare’s will, including a new view on his intentions in leaving his wife his second best bed, until now regarded as rather insulting.
