Shakespeare Lives through Kenneth Branagh on Stage and Screen

This exhibition celebrates the work of Sir Kenneth Branagh in bringing Shakespeare to life on stage and screen and making the work of the Bard accessible to a global audience.

It features rarely seen artefacts from the Sir Kenneth Branagh Archive in Special Collections, the McClay Library at Queen’s University Belfast, which illustrate the actor-director’s remarkable Shakespearean career, from his debut as Henry V with the Royal Shakespeare Company aged just 23 to his Oscar-nominated screen adaptation of Hamlet, and beyond.

Following a successful tour of the exhibition to theatres, public libraries, universities and over 20 post-primary schools across the island of Ireland in 2017-18, 'Shakespeare Lives through Kenneth Branagh on Stage and Screen' will make its way to the Ulster Museum, Belfast, Northern Ireland where it will be on display from 01 June - 01 October 2018.  

If you're visiting Belfast over the summer, why not pop into the Museum and have a look!  And if you can't make it, you can always download the exhibition leaflet here
