Shakespeare's Church
A Parish for the World

Shakespeare's Church: A Parish for the World is a fascinating portrait of a typical English parish church that is world famous as the burial place of the world's most celebrated dramatist. The year 2010 marks the 800th anniversary of Holy Trinity's re-foundation, and through its story over eight centuries, we get a vivid sense of a rich cultural context in the medieval Midlands, and the turbulent centuries that followed, as the Church continued to serve its community.

Shakespeare's Church is a living portrait of the parish at work from past to present, set in the context of its connections with Shakespeare, the church of his time, and its broader history. With a ever-growing international community of Shakespeare lovers, tens of thousands of whom visit the Church every year, this parish history is a perfect gift for Shakespeare and history lovers alike.
