Marking the 400th anniversary of the death of William Shakespeare, this display draws on material in the Royal Library, including works of Shakespeare collected by the royal family, accounts of performances at Windsor Castle, and art by members of the royal family inspired by Shakespeare's plays.

It will examine aspects of the playwright's life, work and influence, and celebrate his longstanding connection with Windsor and the royal court.

Shakespeare in the Royal Library is part of the Shakespeare400 series, marking the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death in 2016. Through a connected series of public performances, programmes, exhibitions and creative activities in the capital and beyond, partners will celebrate the legacy of Shakespeare during the quatercentenary year.
