The Shakespeare’s Birthday Celebrations in Stratford-upon-Avon are lucky to be sponsored by a number of key organisations, who are all committed to continuing this tradition.
Stratford-on-Avon District Council and Stratford-upon-Avon Town Council
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. Thereafter, the Community Carnival Parade, which in 2018 is based on a literary theme, is also organised by the two Councils with considerable help from partner organisations.
LSD Promotions are a long established Midlands based company that provides quality markets and events. The Councils have worked closely with LSD Promotions, who are providing many additional attractions, including the very first ‘National Living Statue Competition’ which we believe is exclusive to Stratford-upon-Avon, and is set to become an annual event.
Shakespeare’s England is the official destination management organisation for Stratford-upon-Avon, Warwick, Kenilworth, Royal Leamington Spa and the surrounding towns and villages. And significantly contribute to raising the awareness of the celebrations to the wider community.
