Frederick Burwick will share his expert knowledge of the Boydell Shakespeare Gallery, opened in Pall Mall in 1789. The talk will examine the extent to which any of the scenes in the Boydell Gallery might be presumed to represent how Shakespeare was actually performed during the period, and also consider present-day models of representation.

 

Prints from the Gallery will be on view, as well as a display about Shakespeare.

 

Places are limited so early bookings are advised: RSVP to City of Westminster Archives Centre, 10 St Ann’s St, London, SW1P 2DE
