Shakespeare North brings culture and heritage to the heart of the historic market town of Prescot near Liverpool.

A replica of the interior of Henry VIII’s cockpit at Whitehall, transformed into a Shakespeare theatre by Inigo Jones, is at the centre of this unique new-build international training facility for Shakespeare Studies.

The project commemorates the deep connection between our greatest cultural icon and Prescot where the only known, purpose-built indoor Elizabethan Playhouse existed outside of London.

There’s evidence indicating that Shakespeare spent his ‘lost years’ (two separate periods covering seven years) in the area.
