400 years ago, the playhouse dominated society.
William Shakespeare was at the centre of this exciting new medium and his tales echo down through the ages. The exhibition will provide a unique insight into the emerging role of London as a world city around 1612 seen through the lens of Shakespeare’s plays.
Maps, prints, drawings, paintings, tapestries, arms and armour, coins and much more will retell Shakespeare’s stories to London in 2012 – a time when the whole world will once again focus on this truly global city.
The exhibition opens in July 2012, but you can book your tickets now

Supporting individuals to achieve optimum mental and physical well-being helps build resilience in a tough business climate. A resilient workforce can adapt to change and is better equipped to tackle challenges head on.
The CIPD Well-being and Resilience Conference, 2 February will deliver expert insight on this much talked-about topic.
Exhibition & Conference : 26-27 January 2011
Learning Technologies and Learning and Skills 2011 today announced their conference programme for 26-27 January, which include over 40 sessions from some of the Learning and Development sector’s leading thinkers and visionaries, with keynote addresses from Socratic Arts CEO Roger Schank, journalist and author Jonathan Margolis and Director of Research and Policy at the UK Commission for Employment and Skills, Professor Mike Campbell OBE.
Over 400 L&D professionals are expected to attend the conference which runs alongside the two exhibitions. The event will be the biggest in its eleven-year history and the full conference programme is announced today with online booking now available.
The conference discusses all of the important issues facing L&D and will be a great opportunity to listen to – and interact with – some of the leading contemporary thinkers and practitioners in workplace learning, to gain both practical assistance for today and insights into how learning will change in the future.
In addition to Schank, Margolis and Campbell, leading speakers include David Mallon, Ewan McIntosh, Dr. Itiel Dror, Jane Bozarth, Steve Smith, Prof. Chris Bones, Charles Jennings, Prof. Steve Wheeler , Nigel Paine, Mark Oehlert and Cathy Moore with case studies from British Airways, Bupa, Siemens, L’Oreal, Caja Madrid, RSA Group, Magnox South and British Army amongst others.
The Learning Technologies exhibition, now in its 12th year, is Europe’s leading showcase of organisational learning and the technology used to support learning at work. And it continues to grow in importance, value and attendance year on year.
Technology supported learning and the role of the learning and development professional has changed dramatically since the launch of Learning Technologies over a decade ago, and employers need to ensure that their staff has the skills and knowledge to continuously adapt to the changing needs and demands of their organisation.
