Shakespeare's First Folio: Craven's National Treasure

Thu 22 August 2024 11am & 2pm

Have you ever wondered how Shakespeare’s First Folio came to Craven? Join us at the museum for a short talk on why this book is so important, and how it became part of the Craven Museum collection.

Willliam Shakespeare’s First Folio was published in 1623 and was the first collected edition of his plays. Without it, works such as Julius Caesur, Macbeth and Twelfth Night would have been lost. Throughout this year, we are celebrating our national treasure’s 400th anniversary.

Talks at 11am & 2pm

Aimed at adults and young people ages 12yrs+.

Duration:

Approximately 30 minutes
