Shakespeare Birthplace Trust to extend opening hours
The BSA congratulates the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust whose archive collections, held in Stratford-upon-Avon, are to become even more accessible to the public.
The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust has taken the decision to invest in their public service and the opening hours of their Reading Room are to be extended by an extra day. From 5 March 2019, the Reading Room will be open Tuesday to Friday, from 10am to 4.30pm, and on Saturdays, from 9.30am to 12.30pm. Access to the Reading Room is free to all.
The Trust holds the world’s largest Shakespeare-related collection open to the public. It also has an extensive local history archive of Stratford-upon-Avon and south Warwickshire that includes records dating back to the 12th century, and manages the Royal Shakespeare Company’s library and archive.
