Who We Are


Shakespeare’s Celebrations is an initiative that is jointly led by Stratford on Avon District Council and Stratford-upon-Avon Town Council, developing the traditional Shakespeare’s Birthday Celebrations in Stratford-upon-Avon to make them sustainable, so reducing pressure on the local public purse.

The two Councils provide the Shakespeare’s Birthday Celebrations’ principal parade, which is hosted by the Town Council and attended by diplomats, notable visitors, local dignitaries, community groups and school children.
