Shakespeare North Playhouse

About

Knowsley’s historic links to William Shakespeare, through the support he received from the Earls of Derby at Knowsley Hall, sets the scene for the Shakespeare North Playhouse in Prescot.

The undeniably enchanting connections between Knowsley, Shakespeare, and Elizabethan theatre provide an appealing historic backdrop to what will be a truly modern cultural and educational asset for the North of England.

At its core is a 350-seater theatre, modelled on the cockpit-in-court design popular during the Elizabethan era. Alongside the theatre will be an outdoor performance garden, exhibition and visitor centre and educational facilities.

The Playhouse will complete the UK’s Shakespearean triangle – London-Stratford-upon-Avon-Prescot – and the project will harness the inexhaustible appeal of Shakespeare and his work, whilst providing an inclusive and high quality cultural, performance and educational facility, attracting visitors from across the globe.
