The Mermaid Inn
In November 2016, the Folger Shakespeare Library in Washington, DC published documents concerning the 1597 visit of Shakespeare’s troupe to Rye for the mayor-making of Mermaid owner, John Fowtrell with an article written by local independent scholars Paul & Rosie Franczak, placing Rye on the world map of Shakespearean scholarship. This inaugural lecture marks the event.
