A building where William Shakespeare went to school and saw theatre performances is to be restored thanks to a £1.4m lottery grant.
The Guildhall, which dates back to 1420, at King Edward VI School in Stratford-upon-Avon, includes his schoolroom and a theatre. The project includes repairing the timber structure and conserving medieval paintings. Work is scheduled to end in April 2016, 400 years after Shakespeare’s death.
