Where Did Shakespeare Live? – Promotional Video for Shakespeare’s New Place

Shakespeare’s final home was New Place in Stratford-Upon-Avon. He lived there for 19 years and died there in 1616. The house itself was demolished in the 18th century, but the site of New Place is now owned by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust, who have completed extensive archaeological research at the site in recent years.

In time for the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death in 2016, the trust is currently re-developing this major heritage site to provide an imaginative re-interpretation for the enjoyment of visitors from all over the world.

This video trails the re-opening New Place in Spring 2016, generating interest and motivating donors to get involved with the New Place project.

Client: Shakesepeare Birthplace trust

Video Shoot Location: Stratford-Upon-Avon, Southwark – London and Hampshire

Be not afeard this isle is full of noises
Sounds and sweet airs that give delight and hurt not.

This is Shakespeare’s New Place. This is the ground where his family home once stood –
Where he lived in the prime of life for nineteen years. Where he was a husband, father, businessman – and yes – a writer; at the time when he gave us his greatest work, this is where he lived and where he died.

In Spring 2016, a new chapter will open at Shakespeare’s New Place. The jewel in the crown of the worldwide celebrations marking 400 hundred years of Shakespeare’s legacy.

Right now, across Britain and beyond, thousands of people are working to breathe new life into New Place, to unlock its hidden secrets, to invite you to walk in Shakespeare’s footsteps.

To see him in a new light and to let your imagination soar, as Shakespeare’s did when he lived here.
