Shakespeare Lecture gets Press Attention

29 January 2024

Once again, we are grateful to the Shropshire Star for coverage of our work - this time a lecture given by our friend and client Tim Ashton, with presentation design and recording by BYRGA GENIHT.

First delivered at St. Mary Abchurch, City of London, the talk is set to be repeated close to Soulton Hall, in the village of Wem.

The lecture focuses on the discovery of the real-life identity of 'Old Sir Rowland', a character in William Shakespeare's play As You Like It. Sir Rowland Hill was a 16th century statesman, publisher and patron of the arts, and the many connections between him and Shakespeare's play make for a compelling case. Moreover, our research at BYRGA GENIHT has established that the cobbled pavement at Soulton Hall preserves the choreography for the dance in the final act of the play.

It is hoped that these discoveries will be a major boost to the economy of Shropshire.
