Master Chamber - Shakespere's School Room
Available for half or full days.
£150 for half a day.
This first-floor room has served a variety of purposes during the life of the Guildhall. At some point it served as a residence for the master and in the late 1880’s became the Prefects’ Common Room for King Edward VI school. The room is dominated by the most magnificent example of an early 17th century oak table which features hundreds of initials carved by prefects over the years. The room’s medieval wall decorations include Tudor Roses and the ragged staff of Leicester and the Earls of Warwick. This atmospheric room provides an ideal space for meetings or small receptions. £200 for half a day. Please enquire for availability.
