The Shakespeares are coming!


“Shakespeare” from Archives & Collections

As part of the Library of Birmingham’s programme of events to mark 400 years of Shakespeare, Birmingham Archives & Collections has put together a pop-up exhibition to showcase some of the diverse and surprising items you can expect to find that “relate” to Shakespeare!

Theme’s include:

  • What’s in a name… the Birmingham Shakespeares… (yes there are lots!)
  • Inspired by Shakespeare
  • Shakespeare’s “Beauties”
  • Shakespeare at Stratford
  • Miniature Shakespeare
  • Reading Shakespeare

    … and more!

Staff will be on hand to talk to you about the items on display, and you might get to spell your name out in Shakespearean letters…

Come along and see us!

23rd April 2016, 12-3pm in the Wolfson Centre, Level 4, Library of Birmingham. Free event.
