Shakespeare’s First Folio – Everything to Everybody exhibition

Join us for a unique opportunity to experience Birmingham’s very own First Folio, the first published collection of Shakespeare’s plays, printed in 1623.

A showcase of access and inclusion in the world of Shakespeare ‘Everything to Everybody’ will explore visual and tactile arts, sound projections and original artefacts. As part of the exhibition we will be welcoming Shakespeare’s First Folio for one day only, which we will support with sensory materials and objects of reference, co-created by Sense supported artists.

Shakespeare’s First Folio was printed in 1623 and is the first published collection of 36 of William Shakespeare’s plays. 750 copies were originally printed, and a total of 235 First Folios are currently known to survive, one of these being the Birmingham First Folio.

The Everything to Everybody project is a collaboration between the University of Birmingham and Birmingham City Council, funded by National Lottery Heritage Fund and History West Midlands.

To view the First Folio, you will need to book a free, allocated time slot. Whilst we hope as many people as possible will be able to view the First Folio, only those with pre-booked tickets can be guaranteed the chance to see this treasure. Should there be a queue to see the First Folio, don’t worry, there will be plenty of activities to enjoy whilst waiting.

Please book a ticket for each person in your party.

The event will include audio braille, easy read and audio description
