Shakespeare Birthplace Trust puts plans in place for an after-dark adventure

THE SHAKESPEARE Birthplace Trust is on the hunt for muse catchers to take part in an after-dark adventure.

Working in partnership with the United Nations Board of Significant Inspiration (UNBOSI), the trust is bringing the Garden of Curious A-Muse-ments to New Place from December 15 to 17.

With sound and light artists on hand, visitors can travel through the gardens finding inspiration while uncovering fairy portals and watching the muse of fire at work. Tuneful visitors can also light up the gardens by playing a tune on the muse-ical keyboard.

New Place manager Chloe Malendewicz said: “We wanted to close the 400th anniversary year of Shakespeare’s death with an exciting new interactive concept in tribute to Shakespeare’s creative genius.

“Working with UNBOSI enables us to explore opportunities to extend our creative programming and capture moments of inspiration from visitors. We hope to see many muse catchers join us on a dazzling journey through the New Place gardens.”

Muse catching parties will set off from 4.30pm and last entry is 8.15pm. Visit for tickets and more information.
