Sharing Shakespeare's Story
Falcon Inn Chair
A label on the back of this chair reads ‘chair from the Falcon Inn, Bidford where Shakespeare held his club meetings’. The chair relates to the popular story that Shakespeare often went to the Falcon Inn. He is said to have taken part in a drinking contest there and fallen asleep under a crab tree on the way home. Some even go as far as suggesting that it was one of these drinking contests that led to his death.
