The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust's Shakespeare experts have been busy hosting a series of digital talks and live Q&As with A-level pupils around the country in our popular new ‘Catch Up With Shakespeare’ sessions. In the first of a short series of blogs on the sessions, Anjna cogitates on some of the questions and themes that arose in the live session.
The Collections Care team are responsible for ensuring the conservation of hundreds of objects across the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust’s properties and collection stores. There are different forms of conservation and it takes a specialist eye and expertise to decide which is appropriate.
As we enter English National Tourism Week (22nd-31st May 2021) we take a look at evidence of early national tourism in our collection, focussing in this blog on one of our favourite items - the diary of John Byng.
