New Place: The Next Chapter


 The Shakespeare Birthplace Trust has exciting plans to breathe fresh life into the site of Shakespeare’s family home at New Place.


We would like to thank everyone who expressed an interest in the future of New Place and came along to our recent informal drop-in sessions to learn more about our developing plans to breathe fresh life into this unique heritage site at the heart of Shakespeare’s story.

During the past 12 months we have consulted widely on proposals to transform New Place, to tell the missing story of Shakespeare’s mature years as a successful writer and citizen of his home town. We have developed our proposals in light of feedback, and our latest public sessions offered an opportunity to view our revised plans and provided us with further exceptionally valuable feedback.

If you were unable to attend any of these sessions, you can still see what we discussed and please do let us know your views via the feedback form provided.

For further information please refer to our press release or call us on 01789 204016.
