    Just read in the Herald paper that the Birthplace believe that ‘it doesn’t make economic sense to reopen all of their properties’!!! Why not just make it through the tough times like everyone else is trying to do? How could Shakespeare’s Birthplace Trust fail in the long run ???Encourage local people to visit instead of relying on tourists, help the local economy?

    Ex Chief Executive of SBT said proudly to the Herald in 2017 ‘Our activities alone generate some £45million a year for the local economy,’ The council need to act on this.
    Are the Trust are currently taking money off their tenants?
