We are offering free entry to our interactive exhibition, The Play’s The Thing this Sunday, as part of Heritage Open Days.

Heritage Open Days is the UK's largest heritage festival - a chance to learn, explore and have fun, with more than 5,000 events taking place across the country from 7-10 September.

We're taking part in the festival by offering free entry to The Play’s The Thing this Sunday. Suitable for all ages, we'll take you on a journey of 100 years of theatre-making, with costumes, props and a copy of Shakespeare’s First Folio. The interactive exhibits include a digital costume mirror, a virtual stage and an A-Z of Shakespeare - revealing behind the scenes secrets.
