New sign welcomes visitors to Shakespeare's Schoolroom and Guildhall

A NEW sign is welcoming visitors to Shakespeare’s Schoolroom and Guildhall in Stratford.

The forged ironwork sign was made by cabinetmaker Tim Ross-Bain who has restored and created much of the building’s interior.

The design reflects the building’s history and includes an image of the playwright as testament to his time in the building as a schoolboy from 1571 to 1578.

A quill also signifies it was there Shakespeare began his journey to become the world’s most famous playwright.

Manager Lindsey Armstrong said: “Tim Ross-Bain’s sign is the finishing touch for Shakespeare’s Schoolroom and Guildhall, with the majority of the restoration work having been carried out in 2016.

“And what a finishing touch it is, Tim has created a beautiful piece of artwork and craftsmanship that is a fitting tribute to this historic building.”
