The traditional Birthday Celebrations enables Stratford-upon-Avon to extend a hand of cultural friendship to many national and international visitors who come to join in the festivities each year. Unfortunately, the Covid-19 pandemic has once again prevented the community from physically staging the 2021 event.
However, we are confident that by next year we will be able to celebrate his 458th birthday in style, but all is not lost for this year. The Town and District Councils have collaborated with many key stakeholders in the town to enable this virtual Birthday Celebrations to be staged. The tribute will be aired on Friday 23 April at 11:00am and can be accessed via the link www.shakespeares-birthday.uk
We are greatly indebted to all those who, by their help and support, have made this presentation possible.
