A Shakespeare Connected exhibition in collaboration with Alexandra Hewitt, University of Birmingham


New Place was Shakespeare's family home in Stratford-upon-Avon from 1597 until 1616. The house was finally demolished in 1759, leaving an empty space on the corner of Chapel Street for over 250 years. This exhibition looks at some of the objects, stories and imaginings connected to Shakespeare's lost house.

What do you think Shakespeare’s New Place would have looked like?

Take a look at some imaginings from across the centuries...
