Charlecote Park

Wednesday, 7th September, 5.30-7.30 pm, Charlecote Park opens its doors to Shakespeare and hosts an evening with the playwright in Warwickshire. The house, completed by Thomas Lucy in 1558, the year Elizabeth I ascended the throne, was one of the first great country houses in Warwickshire and the focus of the poaching scandal which apparently sent Shakespeare fleeing to London. Still part of the Lucy family, the house will host an evening with Sir Stanley Wells and Paul Edmondson to celebrate Shakespeare in his county. We will begin with prosecco and canapés overlooking the deer park and then make our way to the great hall to hear Stanley and Paul talk about Shakespeare and enjoy a private view of the house, including the unique exhibit of the quarto of The Merry Wives of Windsor, the Second Folio and Ortelius’s map of Illyria, where Twelfth Night is set. Tickets are £30 and booking is essential and may be done through either The National Trust on 017989 470222 or Shakespeare’s Birthplace Trust by following this link: https://www.shakespeare.org.uk/visit/whats-on/shakespeare-charlecote-park/
