Happy birthday to one of our much valued Stratford-upon-Avon partners, the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust! @ShakespeareBT 🎂
It's our birthday! #OTD in 1847 the Trust was formed following the purchase of Shakespeare's Birthplace at auction, saving it for the nation. Today, thanks to your support, we continue our mission to share Shakespeare's heritage with the world. bit.ly/2XdPSuO

As we continue to celebrate #BHeritageWeek, today’s item is a great example of why the collection exists. The collection shows us people’s unique relationship with #Shakespeare either as text, performance or on screen over the past 400 years. Not to be missed! YouTube link below:

You should have seen some of the things she brought into the @ShakesInstitute on occasion. The Christmas party fare was an utter delight. That is one hugely talented lady, and clever with it. (Have I made you jealous yet?)
