Welcome to the Shaw Institute

It is now 70 years since  Bernard Shaw died. As part of The Shaw Society, the Shaw Institute holds resources on behalf of the Society. Currently we hold  specifically filmed interviews and performance material which will grow in scope as the Society itself celebrates  its 80th anniversary in 2021.

The first resources posted were Shavian Conversations with Professor Stanley Weintraub and Barbara Smoker – both of whom sadly  recently passed away. As lifelong Shavians their knowledge and insights are remarkable, and valuable to anyone interested in Shaw. 

We are now also including  recordings of The Shaw Society performances  and events. Have a look at the first such event to be included- Farewell GBS – an event held remotely and attended by a worldwide audience on 2 November 2020 on the 70th anniversary of Shaw’s death.  

A second Farewell GBS such event will be held on 6 December 2020.

Click here to join the second Farewell GBS  event which commences at 7.30 PM GMT on 6 December 2020.
