Memories of Her Majesty

Discover memories from the Queen's visits to Stratford-upon-Avon over the last 70 years.

Over the past month we have been reaching out to the people that live and work in Stratford-upon-Avon to discover their memories of the Queen and celebrating past jubilees in their streets and communities. Here is a selection of those stories, spanning right back to the coronation in 1953 to the last time the Queen visited, in 2011 to reopen the Royal Shakespeare Theatre. 

Town Hall Display

Friday 3 June, 10am - 4pm
Stratford-upon-Avon Town Hall, Sheep Street

A colourful display remembering how the Queen's reign has brought together families, friends and the people of Stratford-upon-Avon. On display for the very first time, photographs and specially selected items from the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and Royal Shakespeare Company collections celebrate royal visits from the Queen, alongside memory boxes created by local community groups.
