Big Green Month

Highlighting our Sustainable Shakespeare initiative

Discover more about Sustainable Shakespeare

This Spring we are exploring the actions taking place across the Shakespeare family homes to support biodiversity and to reach our target of net-zero carbon emissions by 2030.

From special walks and breakfasts at Anne Hathaway’s Cottage, to playing host to the local launch event for the UK’s biggest celebration of community action tackling climate change at Shakespeare's New Place, there is something for everyone to enjoy.
