Shakespeare's Windsor

6:00 PM, ​ Royal Festival Hall, London, SE1 8XX

This exhibition gives access to a very special private collection that explores Shakespeare’s relationship with Windsor, and the very specific associations the playwright had with the town, as a principal seat of Royal power. The exhibition, presented by The Royal Collection Trust, explores ways in which Shakespeare has been collected, viewed, adopted, and performed by the monarchy in the 400 years since his death, and will be introduced here by The Royal Librarian, Oliver Urquhart Irvine, before going on to become part of the visitor experience at Windsor Castle. The exhibition includes material rarely made available to the public, from the Royal Library and Royal Archives, accompanied by collection items from other parts of the Royal Collection.
