Shakespeare's Guildhall Trust
Keep Britain's oldest working theatre working. A theatre since 1442 and the only remaining one in the world where Shakespeare actually performed.
A new trust has been set up whose purpose is to:
- Promote the knowledge, understanding, and enjoyment of performance and visual arts through the use of St George’s Guildhall, King’s Lynn.
- Celebrate and continue its 600 years' history as a living arts venue.
- Provide educational and learning opportunities for all.
This trust wants to work with anyone dedicated to keeping the oldest theatre in the country as a theatre and arts space.
In line with our core values, Shakespeare’s Guildhall Trust has started a research group to compile and enhance knowledge of the extraordinary heritage of the Guildhall.
