Visit the exhibition at Nash’s House to find out more about their stories, their deeds and their often grusome ends… See our characters brought to life with humorous contemporary illustrations by Ailsa Burrows.

You will also find fun facts, an interactive quiz and a selection of 16th Century treasures on loan from the RSC Collection such as props, costumes and historical items relating to each of our top 10 characters.
