Sharing Shakespeare’s Story is part of the Museums and Schools programme and is funded by Arts Council England and the Department for Education. Part of the legacy of the project is the creation of this online exhibition featuring the children’s responses to some of the items in our collections.
William Shakespeare was an ordinary boy from Stratford-upon-Avon who grew up to do extraordinary things. The children taking part in Sharing Shakespeare’s Story have achieved more than they imagined possible when they started the project. As a teacher said of the experience “It is sowing the seeds for children’s cultural, literary and historical experiences and understanding”
