New project win: Shakespeare’s Schoolroom and Guildhall, Stratford

Stratford-upon-Avon’s 15th Century Guildhall is currently undergoing major restoration and conservation work and will be opening as a heritage and visitor attraction in April 2016, to coincide with the 400th anniversary of William Shakespeare’s death. Home to a series of extremely rare medieval wall paintings, showing the seal of the Guild of the Holy Cross, the building is one of only a dozen surviving examples of a late medieval provincial Guildhall.

The new heritage centre will provide the missing chapter of the story of William Shakespeare’s life in Stratford: his education and his inspiration to act and write.

Working with Imagemakers, we will be developing tablet and touchscreen interactives telling the history of the building and Stratford’s civic history as well as that of the young Shakespeare. Based on our content management system, the exhibits will be easily updated by the staff.
