See Stratford’s future through innovative giant binoculars

Stratford residents of all ages and backgrounds are invited to contribute their hopes, dreams and imaginings for the future of their town in a series of free creative workshops as part of an innovative playable art project.

I See the Future explores how people who live in Stratford imagine the future of their town in 100 years’ time. Two giant pairs of binoculars will appear on Henley Street and the Bancroft Gardens over the weekend of 6-8 September. The creations will be transformed into vibrant animations that play inside the binoculars and layered over real-time footage of Stratford. 

This innovative artistic project has been commissioned by the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust and the Royal Shakespeare Company to explore the experiences and perspectives of local people. It is being created by Anagram, an award-winning female-led creative company specialising in interactive storytelling and immersive experiences.


I See the Future marks the 250th anniversary of the first Shakespeare Jubilee of 1769, the event that established the Shakespeare tourism industry in Stratford. It is supported by Arts Council England and Watershed's Creative Producers International, which is backed by British Council and the University of the West of England.
