In Shakespeare’s home town of Stratford-upon-Avon, his life and works are celebrated throughout the year by the Royal Shakespeare Company and the Shakespeare Birthplace Trust.
The Royal Shakespeare Company is one of the world’s best known theatre companies, connecting people with Shakespeare and producing bold, ambitious work with living writers, actors and artists.
Shakespeare Birthplace Trust offers a unique Shakespeare centred experience with outstanding archive and library collections, inspiring educational and literary event programmes and five wonderful houses all directly relating to Shakespeare.
The far reaching impact that Shakespeare’s writings have had on people’s lives across the world is widely recognized and evident from the seemingly endless number of theatres, festivals, institutions and other organisations that are dedicated to his name.
