Keeping Britain’s oldest working theatre working
St George’s Guildhall in King’s Lynn is the largest 15th Century guildhall in England. The Guildhall Theatre is the oldest working theatre in the UK and is the only theatre that can claim to have hosted Shakespeare. It is currently owned by the National Trust and leased to the Borough Council of King’s Lynn & West Norfolk but it currently faces an uncertain future. Shakespeare’s Guildhall Trust was founded with the single purpose of establishing a sustainable future for the whole site that will keep the Guildhall working for the benefit of the whole community and for future generations.
