LUNCHTIME LECTURE: As we celebrate the 450th anniversary of Shakespeare's birth, our new Head of Research, Professor Bill Sherman, goes in search of the Bard.

Shakespeare is one of the few major figures from the arts and sciences whose name or portrait does not appear on the walls of the V&A, and yet his presence is everywhere in the collections and the lives of those who created them.

Led by Bill Sherman, Head of Research at the V&A.

13.00 - 13.45

This event will be followed by a public tea party to celebrate the launch of Shakespeare in 100 Objects, a new publication by Nick Hern Books, celebrating Shakespeare treasures in the V&A collections (Lecture Theatre Landing, 13.45 - 14.15).
