Shakespeare at the Museum from Blackburn with Darwen Council on Vimeo.

In Summer 2016 Blackburn Museum & Art Gallery exhibited the first four Shakespeare Folios. In this video Sir Brian Vickers (who is a world authority on Shakespeare with special interest in the surviving printed texts of his works), speaks about his work, the folios and the collections at Blackburn Museum.

 

The following three videos have been created by college students Tara Forshaw, Hayley Dean, Kimberley Ashurst and Samantha Hull from the Media Department at Blackburn College.
