    Default World Shakespeare Centre

    Oh good God, hasn't Stratford got enough Shakespeare already?

    Maybe kill the golden goose?
    Of course it'll fit, you just need a bigger hammer.

    I'm starting to think of Stratford as being a 1 trick pony, and the pony's in danger of being flogged to death.

    The project's missed out on some funding, but it's only delaying the inevitable: https://www.coventrytelegraph.net/ne...m-bid-22126356

    "reinforce Stratford-upon-Avon's position as the epicentre of the Shakespearian experience"
    As far as I know, nowhere else claims Shakespeare?

    From the outline on the map, that is one big site. What are they going to fill it with?

    The plan seems to include 'community facilities', housing, shops & offices as well as a load of Shakespeare gubbins. The words 'theme park' keep popping into my head for some reason.

    They don't want the Earl of Oxford or Francis Bacon taking the credit!

    Now that might provoke an interesting discussion.
