Reasons to Visit

A Summer of Shakespeare


To celebrate 400 years since the publication of Shakepeare’s First Folio, the display at Stonyhurst will explore the history and stories of approximately 40 objects from its Museum and Archives, each of which have unique links to Shakespeare’s plays that feature within the First Folio. The focal point of the exhibition will be Stonyhurst’s copy of an original First Folio which will be exhibited in the historical Do Room at the College. The display will touch on the significance of St Omers Jesuit drama, and the part played by the accrual at St Omers College of Jesuit relics from all over the world, and their influence on the dramatic performances for which Stonyhurst College was so famous for.

The exhibition will be open to the public through a ticketed event from 7th July every Friday and Saturday until 17th August.
