Shakespeare in 100 Objects - lunchtime lecture and public launch

A public lecture and launch party to celebrate the publication of Shakespeare in 100 Objects.

As we celebrate the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth, the Victoria and Albert Museum's new Head of Research, Professor Bill Sherman, goes in search of the Bard.

Shakespeare is one of the few major figures from the arts and sciences whose name or portrait does not appear on the walls of the V&A, and yet his presence is everywhere in the collections and the lives of those who created them.

Where: The Lydia & Manfred Gorvy Lecture Theatre, Victoria and Albert Museum, London
When: Wednesday 30 April, 13.00 - 13.45

This event will be followed by a public tea party to celebrate the launch of Shakespeare in 100 Objects on the Lecture Theatre Landing, 13.45 - 14.15.

Shakespeare in 100 Objects - Treasures from the Victoria and Albert Museum
