We’re delighted to be working alongside Art Hoppers and Rich Mix, The Theatre Courtyard Gallery, and Columbia Primary School for Dramatic Discoveries – a project which celebrates the discovery of ‘The Theatre, London’s first playhouse and stage to Shakespeares plays, culminating in a art exhibition displaying works created by pupils in Shoreditch.

Our archaeologists have been working with a group of year 4 students at Columbia Primary School, exploring the rich archaeological heritage of London's Elizabethan playhouses and using the discovery of The Theatre to inspire them. In early 2020, a new exhibition centre. Art Hoppers have been working with the students to create artwork inspired by archaeology, which will go on display to the public on 18th July until 27th August.

The Theatre Courtyard Gallery will open to showcase the original, archaeological remains of The Theatre alongside a collection of 16th century objects discovered on site.
