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.

We have a Youtube Channel which is updated regularly with videos ranging from gallery tours and learning sessions. A few examples can be found below:
