A weekend of festivities throughout the town marking Shakespeare’s 453RD જન્મદિવસ

Brass bands, people in period costume, dignitaries and VIP guests join with community groups and schoolchildren, among them students of Shakespeare’s own King Edward’s School, to make their way through the town centre to Holy Trinity Church to lay flowers on Shakespeare’s grave. Traditional ceremonies take centre stage as the procession pauses to witness the handing over of the Quill representing Shakespeare’s legacy, and the Unfurling of Flags along Bridge Street, હાઇ સ્ટ્રીટ હેન્લી સ્ટ્રીટના.
