Monday 18 March, after AGM, which starts at 6pm - White Swan

Rachael North is Director of Museum and Public Programmes for the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust. Her team encompasses the core of the Trust's museum work from opening the Shakespeare family homes, to delivering the award-winning learning and cultural offer, caring for the Trust's nationally significant collections, and running the commercial operations.

Prompted by the 400th anniversary of the death of Anne Shakespeare, the SBT is embarking on an ambitious project to explore the stories of the women who both influenced Shakespeare during his lifetime and contributed to his legacy. The aim is to uncover and celebrate authentic voices to reveal new perspectives on the Shakespeare story.
