Shakespeare’s Birthday Celebrations 2024

The traditional Birthday Celebrations return to Stratford-upon-Avon in April, extending a hand of cultural friendship to many national and international visitors who come to join in the festivities.

During the Covid-19 pandemic when the arranging of a physical parade was not possible, we released a virtual celebration which was broadcast via YouTube.  This can be accessed via the link

We look forward to welcoming everyone to Stratford-upon-Avon on Saturday 20 April 2024 for this year’s event.

The programme of activities can be found here.
